Judge Judy sued, but is the lawsuit bogus?
However, TMZ has obtained the divorce documents that show the china and flatware in question was purchased by the couple in 2003 for roughly $100,000. The divorce judge (who is not Judge Judy) values the items at $125,000 and plans to order Douthit to pay Patrice half that amount in the divorce proceedings.
The judge also says Patrice has "lacked integrity" during the case and is being "untruthful."
Patrice's lawyer says if the divorce judge does make this ruling, Patrice plans to appeal. But it sounds as though the lawsuit against Judge Judy is groundless.
For her part, Judge Judy says of Patrice, "If this 50-year-old woman would spend her time more productively at trying to find a job, instead of abusing the judicial system with frivolous lawsuits, we would all be a lot better off."
