Judge Judy Net Worth – How A Real Judge Becomes TV Star

Judge Judy is a real life judge, who has finished law college, passed a bar exam and worked in several jurisdiction roles, being both a prosecutor and a judge, in family and in criminal cases. Her career is over 35 years long, and television show has been going on nonstop since 1996, so next year it will be 20 years on air, and this is a direct explanation why net worth of Judge Judy is so incredibly high, when you consider that prosecutors and judges don’t really earn this much. However, Judge Judy has her private plain, so she has evidently made a great career of her professional knowledge. This knowledge has attracted people to watch the show, so some other similar shows didn’t have this much success, nor have earned this much nominations and subsequent awards, such as Emmy (and Judge Judy did won several Emmy awards). It is interesting to mention that Judge’s bailiff was also her real-life bailiff in a family court in Manhattan. When he saw that she got television courtroom, he wrote her a letter offering his services again, and Judy has accepted. He has been in this role ever since, and although producers wanted to introduce new faces in this role, judge has never accepted this.
Just last year, Judge judy wrote a book which was offered for free. This is not her first writing experience: she wrote one book at the beginning of her television career, called Don’t Pee On My Leg and Tell Me It’s Raining.

Judge Judy Work
Work in the set court is organized generally just as in regular small claims court. Production finds appropriate cases country wide, asking interested parties to send their claims to production for judge’s review, or requesting from small claims courts their numerous cases for handling on television. There is also web page of the show on which lawsuits can be sent for the presentation in the show. When production contacts both parties and they agree to solve their case in Judge Judy’s courtroom, process will be organized. Parties are introduced to the fact that maximum award for winning party is $5000, plus each party gets $500 for the appearance and covering fees for travel and accommodation, which are paid for the witnesses as well. This covering of traveling and accommodation costs has motivated some people to falsely claim their cases, because that was ideal opportunity to come to Hollywood, enjoy good weather and have fun in LA, plus they had the chance to split the awarded sum that one party got. One of these cases was made public in 2010 by the parties involved, who also stated that show producers knew all about it. Show production has denied such allegations.
At least some of the cases on the series have been circumstances that were allegedly contrived by the litigants just to receive monetary payment from the program.
