Judge Judy is used to handing out the punishment, but the TV judge is now facing some possible punishment of her own after it was reported by E! Online that she’s being sued for apparently being sold fine china at a cut price deal by her producer, when it was in fact worth far more than the value she got it for.

Apparently Judge Judy Judith Sheindlin is being asked to return the china she allegedly bought, with the suit stating that the Christofle Mary Bone China was community property, but that her producer, Randall Douthit, sold it to Sheindlin for $50,000, when it's actual retail value is $514,421.14. The person making the claim is Douthit’s ex, Patric Jones, who claims that it was part of a scheme Sheindlin and Douthit concocted in order to keep her out of the sale of what was her and her ex’s community property.

For her part, Judge claims "I have not seen any complaint by the former Mrs. Douthit, however, I don't owe this lady a cent. And 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,” according to TMZ.
