Judge Judy is totally awesome

If you haven't seen her chew out the careless dog owner and rule in favor of a cyclist, you have to see this. Ya gotta love her.

The defendants both look like Class A ******bags.

Wow, I am glad she explained the situation to these wonderful examples of human waste, Lord!

I noticed how the defendants acted like morons, and the cyclist and his wife completely presented the case calmly with pictures and evidence. Pwnt.

1800$ for pain and suffering, awesome.

some highlights from the defendants:

"he caused this accident by being in the wrong place at the wrong time"

"he was riding 35-40 miles away from his own residence, on a major highway"

"i know it's not against the law to ride a bike, but they're dangerous".


the sheer stupidity of these people is amazing. glad the guy got some money out of it.

Most of Judy's "guests" are d-bags. But some are classy as well. At least a mixed bag and not Jerry Springer-ish. I love Judge Judy!

How long ago was this? That bike couldn't have been anywhere near 5000 unless this was in the early 90s or something.

Great video though. I hate dogs myself. And no, I don't have a fear of dogs at all, but I just hate them. Cats aren't much better.

That wife was frickin' clueless. To the very end she could not understand/accept that they are responsible for their dog's actions.

I'm absolutely baffled how they think the cyclist is somehow partially responsible because he was riding on a public road far from home.

Because of the quill stem? The bike was apparently a Serotta Ti (he's responding to comments on the you tube page).

yeah, that part really bugged me. she started to argue that there were thousands of miles of bike paths that he should be riding on instead. or maybe that he should have been closer to home?? either one makes no sense.

Guess the defendants thought it would work in real life.

Just because you one thing that a person did, that doesn't mean that you need to love them. GW Bush and I both own Scottish Terriers, but I can't f***ing stand that moron.
