As for the cases on 5-22-20:
Can JM please leave these 'shocking family secrets' for Dr. Phil ? She is supposed to be a Judge (or mediator), not a family therapist. Please stick to the legalities of the case and stop exploiting these young people for ratings. A month ago, we had the young man who found out his grandmother died while taping an episode, yesterday we have the big family secret that the brother sexually abused the sister. If I want to see this exploitation, I'd tune in to Dr. Phil each day - but I purposely don't. Stick to the case and the facts presented - we don't need to dig deeper and ask 'where's dad in the picture?' Dad was never brought up, and is not part of the legal suit.
As for the 59 year old man and the 27 year old Kim Kardashian Clone. It's so nice to see JM laugh and giggle along with the Defendant and reward her in the end for despicable behavior. In a three month period, he 'gifted' her thousands of dollars, and how much did she 'gift back' in return ? JM didn't ask that question (Judge Judy always does). If they had reached the 'gifting' stage in their relationship, how did the defendant reciprocate ? Yet JM was so impressed with how she took advantage of the older man, she didn't care about the legalities of the case. Thie Kardashian Clone was her hero, as she encompassed all the morals of younger women everywhere.
But I couldn't help wondering - would this have played out the same if it was a 59 year old woman suing a 27 year old muscle stud ? Would JM be giggling and laughing along with him if a older woman was ripped off by his charms and seduction? Would she be cheering him on with 'you go stud muffin!' if the plaintiff was a 59 year old woman ? I think not.
