The lawsuit claims that Judge Judy got too good of a bargain on some used china and flatware. The woman who filed the suit says she was effectively stolen from.
It all started because a Judge Judy producer, Randy Douthit, was going through a nasty divorce from Patrice Jones. The estranged couple had some very expensive Christofle tableware.
Jones filed the lawsuit against Judge Judy, claiming that her soon-to-be ex, Douthit, entered in a fraudulent scheme to cheat hear out of china and flatware, which she values at $514,421.14.
Jones said Judy effectively stole the china from her for only $50,000, the price Judy paid for the china and flatware.
But now TMZ reports that china and flatware were "purchased in 2003 for approximately $100,000. The divorce judge valued the items in 2012 at $125,000 and plans to order Randy to pay Patrice half -- $62,500.
"Short story ... by getting $62,500, Patrice wouldn't be out a penny and would have no claim to the goods."
The judge also questioned Patrice's creditably saying that she "lacked integrity" and was "untruthful."
Jones seeks punitive damages and she wants the china and flatware back or she wants Judge Judy to fork over $514,421.14.
Judge Judy tells TMZ, "I have not seen any complaint by the former Mrs. Douthit, however, I don't owe this lady a cent. And if this 50-year-old woman would spend her time more productively at trying to find a job, instead of abusing the judicial system with frivolous lawsuits, we would all be a lot better off."
