My letter from The Judge Mathis Show

When I had some legal issues last year, I was sent this letter from the Judge Mathis show, via FedEx. (I edited out my name and address.)


I had a good laugh, as did some of my close family members and friends, but I declined to contact the show. While it was no guarantee they'd have taken my case, I just didn't feel comfortable with the idea of putting my personal business on national TV when I felt I had a pretty good defense to win in normal court (and I did win the case.)

Still, the letter did confirm what I had long suspected: You don't have to worry about a thing financially if Judge Mathis says you lose the case; only the shame of being on TV if you come across looking like an idiot.

My grandpa was on Judge Mathis a few years ago. I've still got it on my DVR. It's hilarious.

There are so many court shows these days... I hear Judge Judy makes 25 million dollars a year.

I had some buddies do that, unfortunately they decided to destroy a hotel room and buy something illegal from an undercover. So they left that city with more legal issues then they arrived in it with.

The Yahoo address did stand out to me as well, but no, it wasn't a scam. The number does go to a legit voice mail, and the FedEx packaging sent to me checked out on the return address and all that jazz.

Indemnified arbitration, any party will be happy to have that. The Claimant gets paid for sure if he wins and the Respondent has no liability no matter the outcome! Plus, it frees up judicial economy, most small claims courts are pretty much swamped with bs lawsuits over a few bucks (sometimes literally).

I've actually had this convo with people, if I get sued I'd want to go on a show. They get paid their $$ and I don't pay ****.

Who's the judge who looks like he's had plastic surgery and wears lipstick?

I don't like that guy.

It has to deal with my ex-fiancee, but I'd rather not get into it, because the lawsuit is just one part of the giant picture, and quite frankly, I've closed that chapter in my life.

So anyone up for a trip to Chicago? Just let me sue you for $5k, we both get a trip to Chicago and we can hit the streets and show up blasted to court. Mathis would have a great time with that.

Free trip out of town and nothing to lose?! I'd definitely take that!!

I'd probably make an ass out of myself on purpose too.

That brings up a good point. I wonder if I sued you for 5k and then you sued me 5k do we each get 5k since it doesn't come out of our pockets or would the cost just be negated?

I did have a friend and his wife go on this show and they're sorta punk/goth-ish and when they got there the crew made them dress up just a bit more to make it interesting. I believe they got their check before they left Chicago.
