Funniest ‘Judge Judy’ Case Ever!
From dogs in the courtroom to dance-offs, Judge Judy has seen almost everything in her 20 years behind the bench, but she’s never seen anything quite as comical as this.
Judge Judy has seen some pretty ridiculous cases in her more than twenty seasons on tv. You think you’ve seen it all, and then someone else surprises you. Some people really need to stop and think before they talk, especially when the law is involved.
This specific case that came before Judge Judy is an older case from 2010 that went viral a few years later. It now has nearly 5.5 million views on YouTube and shows no signs of slowing down.
The Plaintiff, eighteen-year-old Gina Paradeza, has taken two young men to court over a purse that she claims were stolen. As usual, Judge Judy asks the plaintiff to review the details of the case to verify all the facts.
The judge asks Gina what items were stolen. According to her, her wallet was the most valuable thing stolen out of her purse. She lost $50, several gift cards, and a calculator that had been in the wallet, and she had to get all of her IDs replaced. Among the items stolen from the wallet was an earpiece.
To everyone’s disbelief and amusement, one of the defendants immediately interrupts Gina to correct her. Addressing Judge Judy, he says, “There was not an earpiece there, ma’am.”
Judge Judy almost loses her composure at the defendant’s statement, since he just incriminated himself and verified that he did indeed commit the crime. She looks at her bailiff and jokingly whispers about the defendants, calling them, “Dumb and Dumber.”
That’s all it took for Judge Judy to deliver her verdict. She obviously filed in favor of the Plaintiff, awarding her $500 for the stolen contents. These two defendants made the judge’s job extremely easy that day.
These two young men should have educated themselves a bit more before going to court. They could have at least “plead the fifth” – the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which allows a defendant to not respond in court in order to avoid self-incrimination.
Some people just need to learn to keep their mouths shut. Mark Twain said it best: “It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”
