Judge Judy is known for being tough and not taking excuses from anyone. You can’t pull one over on this judge. She has a way of getting to the truth and telling it like she sees it.
In a recent case, twenty-year-old Brooke McCroskey sued her ex-boyfriend for unpaid parking tickets and for causing her car to get towed. Sounds straightforward, right? Well, you’re in for a surprise.
Judge Judy, as always, started by verifying the facts of the case. And what she discovered left her completely astonished. It turns out, Brooke doesn’t even have a driver’s license, just a learner’s permit that she’s held for the past two years.
Adding to the madness, Brooke’s mother Linda had gifted her the car on her eighteenth birthday, even though she didn’t have a driver’s license. Judge Judy couldn’t help but express her disbelief, telling Linda, “There’s something wrong with you.” The eye-rolling that followed was quite a sight!
As if that wasn’t enough, Brooke’s boyfriend at the time, who offered to teach her how to drive, somehow became responsible for parking the car. And surprise, surprise, he parked it in the wrong spot, leading to the car being towed.
But why was Brooke suing her ex-boyfriend? She claimed that he should be held accountable for the towing costs, tickets, and fines she incurred.
Throughout the whole court proceedings, Brooke’s ex-boyfriend stood silently, not uttering a single word in his defense. As Judge Judy grew more frustrated with the absurdity of the case, his eyes widened in disbelief. It was quite comical, to say the least.
After verifying all the facts, Judge Judy wasted no time in delivering her ruling. She didn’t hold back, exclaiming, “Tell your mother to pay it… She has absolutely no business giving you, who doesn’t look responsible enough to take care of a goldfish, a car that can be used to kill somebody!”
Leave it to Judge Judy to quickly identify a spoiled brat and a very foolish parent. And she wasn’t shy about telling them exactly what she thought. The things people are willing to share in these courtroom tapings are quite hilarious.
Whether you agree with Judge Judy or not, she certainly knows how to bring the hammer down when it comes to irresponsible behavior. But let’s face it, we’ve all encountered people who push the boundaries of common sense.
So, next time you find yourself in a similar situation, remember Judge Judy’s no-nonsense approach and ask yourself, “What would Judge Judy say?” You might just find the answer you need to put things into perspective.
