"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. - Matthew 7:1. So-called Christian soldiers It's time to do your business or get off the pot Order in the court - which is sorely lacking in most of these court TV shows, a point that will be explained in this book about those programs and the people who sit in as "judges." And yet these television judges - really arbitrators and mediators - sit in judgment of na ve litigants five days a week using a wide range of "judges" to make decisions about the lives of everyday people who have been vetted to ensure that they will appear on television and make utter clowns of themselves for the pleasure of the viewing audience. This book deals with the most popular court TV programs and gives them a going-over in the same way that far too many of those sitting on that bench do to litigants who have literally signed their lives away in exchange for a shot at stardom. Move over Koko, Bozo and Shakes: there is a new crop of "clowns" on the horizon. And many of them are your next door neighbors. The judges analyzed in this book include Alex Ferrer, the "Couples Court" with the Cutler family, Marilyn Milian of "The People's Court" and Jeanine Pirro, President Donald Trump's mouthpiece. Others include Lynn Toler, the queen of bipolar disorder, Karen Mills-Francis a sistah with dyed blond hair, Faith Jenkins who looks like she should be in grade school and Greg Mathis, the "street brutha" who never hesitates to remind the audience of that and to bring up the subject of "crack" whenever possible. I close out with Joe Brown, Lauren Lake of "Paternity Court" and then comes the one I enjoyed criticizing the most: Judge Judy Sheindlin of "Judge Judy." Additional analysis is included in sections on which shows I deem "the best" and "the worst" and a final word on "the minstrel production machine."
