Judge Judy And CBS Sued Again Over Profits

Once again, Judge Judy finds herself on the other side of the bench with a new breach-of-contract complaint filed against the top TV judge and CBS. While the jury-trial seeking suit from Kaye Switzer and the trust of the late Sandi Spreckman doesn’t specify damages, it does state that the plaintiffs are owed $4.75 million from the $95 million sale of Judge Judy to CBS in August.

CBS Sued Over Judge Judy’s Salary, Profits

A multi-million dollar lawsuit filed today against CBS has the no-nonsense host, the syndicated small claims series and spin-off Hot Bench in the legal spotlight. Seeking widespread unspecified damages, plaintiff Rebel Entertainment Partners claim that it has been denied contractually obligated payments since 2010 from the net profits of the 19-season reality court show distributed by CBS Television because it supposedly is “losing money” while paying Judge Judy herself up to $47 million a year.
