Default Any People'* Court Fans??

My wife and I sued our neighbor when their long dead tree fell and landed on my car and did some damage. Neighbors jerked us around for a while and so we filed a claim in small claims court. While we were waiting for our court date to arrive, I get notified from People'* Court. Once I looked into it, it seemed like it was the the way to go because you are guaranteed payment if you win and we knew that even if we won a judgement in small claims court, we would not get paid. So both parties finally accept and we get a date. They pay for us to take the Acela Train to NY, which was great. We showed up, stated our case and we win. The best 4 words that I heard that day were "judgement for the plaintiff".

I just got notified that the air date is March 29 and the case is called "Refusing To Go Out On A Limb" # 21-297.

BTW, we got paid in 2 weeks.

Congrats on winning the case.

Very cool. I'll have to make sure to watch that one. I'm sure it will end up on youtube, so make sure you put a link here.

Congrats, never knew Peoples Court did shows anywhere except Hollywood (although haven't seen the show in decades). Will be looking for your episode.

I think Judge Judy is filmed in NY. Judging by the NYS flag behind her.

You were right, it is filmed in CA, but she use to be a Family court judge in NYS.
