‘America’s Court With Judge Ross’ Staffs Up, Eyes Strong Fall Debut

Jul 13, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Entertainment Studios has hired Judson Touby to be the senior producer of “America’s Court With Judge Ross,” a new court show and the first one to be shot is HD.

Jenny Hope, a three-time Emmy nominee, will be supervising producer.

“Judson brings a huge amount of talent and valuable experience to our new court show,” said Byron Allen, Entertainment Studios founder, chairman and CEO. “We are highly confident he’ll be a valuable asset in helping us achieve our goal of making ‘America’s Court With Judge Ross’ the No. 1 court show.”

Judge Kevin Ross, 35, the youngest judge ever elected to the bench in the state of California, headlines the program.

“Judge Ross is an extraordinary talent, and this show is simply unstoppable. He is young, fresh, bold, brilliant, funny, tough, and always fair,” said Allen.

  1. Judge Ross has to go. He cannot even begin to compete with Judge Sheindlin or Millian. I couldn’t believe he was really a judge after what I saw today on WYCW. Here is a rundown of errors I caught just in passing on a case involving a wife suing a nanny for stealing her husband: The husband stated he hadn’t had sex with his wife in 5 years. Judge Ross accused him of lying because they had a 4 year old child. Does he not realize that even if the child just turned 4, the math would be 4 years plus nine months which would be about 5 years. Next, Ross quoted the claim against the nanny as “Alienation AND Affection”. Only a 5 year old could mess that up. Several times he referred to the couple as not having “sexual relationships” with one another. That simply makes no sense as the proper term is “sexual relations” which the nanny used correctly, but not the judge. He also referred to not having sex as not having “marital cohabitation”. That simply means living with one another as a married couple in the same dwelling, which they were doing, and that was undisputed. Ross then found in favor of the wife (plaintiff) against the nanny for Alienation of Affection even though the wife by her own account claims she hasn’t had sex with her husband in at least 10 months, and the nanny has only been hired for 8 months with the sexual relationship starting months into her employment. Therefore the wife was receiving the same affection before and after the arrival of the nanny, which was none, but by her own choosing. Now morally the husband and nanny were wrong to have the affair, but so was the wife for not performing her moral and legal duties as a spouse. How did Ross pass the bar without understanding simple legal concepts. This show needs to be canceled. Judge Sheindlin and Millian teach legal concepts to the public during their shows whereas Ross confuses them, misquotes them and generally rules against the law.

  2. You make some valid points. However, give it a chance. When was the last time you went to the law school, passed the bar, was elected to the bench and got your own TV show. I’m willing to give it a chance and see the improvement.

  3. I like the show. It is refreshing to see a judge not allow people argue with each other and talk over each other. I like his no nonsense approach

  4. This show is a sham — an ex-judge who was forced to step down from the bench, and the “litigants” are only actors, not real litigants.

  5. that’s what i was wondering. i was on imdb.com and when i was looking for info on this show i was shocked to see they were actors.
    It’s like the old court shows all over again.

  6. Watched 15 minutes of the show today. Quickly realized they are actors! Forget it! There are many GOOD court shows with the actual people stating their cases.

  7. i saw the show the first time yesterday. i found it refreshing. i like all the judge shows and judge judy is my fave. but this guy is very serious. has complete control of his court and does not make a mockery of the court…..yet.
    i like the show and will watch it next week.

  8. I think that his show is very boring. Yes I do like the fact that the litigants are not arguing and talking over each other, but this judge is so boring and he seems to not know the right questions to ask. I would rather see Judge Mathis. Where is is stated that the litigants are actors?

  10. Shocked we were actors? Hell, thanks for the compliment. I worked my ass off during my segment.
    I’m the guy who sold a “church lady” insurance for her cat once the Second Coming takes the lady to heaven.
    It’s a cool fun show. Amazingly the cases are all real. We had to improvise around the facts.

  12. If you watch closely @ the end of the show, it clearly states “All characters and events depicted in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.” why would anyone want to watch a fake judge show?! I’m never watching again.

  14. My mother battling her 4th cancer lossed her vision with Chemo, she loved Judge Ross thinking it was the best real judge show, as an attorney I told her about arbrition process. Then to find out its all fake? We will never watch it again, if it becomes real millions might watch his real type of arbs.

  15. God help anyone who falls in the hands of Judge Ross. His rulings are outrageous. I prefer to watch Judges Judy, Mathis, or Brown. A higher judge will judge Ross.

  16. I love the show, even the one with the nanny. All the Judges can be confusing at one time or another, but Judge Ross’s show is very entertaining!
    One caveat, though…At the end of the show the credits state that all characters and situations are fictional….Is this true?

  17. I like the show

  18. Who want to watch a FAKE court show???
    Just another one of Byron Allen’s garbage shows.

  19. hey buddy,this is one of the best posts that I’ve ever seen; you may include some more ideas in the same theme. I’m still waiting for some interesting thoughts from your side in your next post.

  20. Neat blog layout! Very easy on the eyes.. i like the colors you picked out

  21. I love the expression. Everyone needs to express there own opinion and feel free to hear others. Keep it up :)

  22. Judge ross is not a good judge. U don’t listen & u just want to b on tv. Please take this man off u making yourself look dumb.

  23. Unlike the other court shows, this show is fake, with ALL characters and events being FICTITIOUS. When I watch a court show, it’s with the intent to educate myself on the law. I should expect to learn as much about the law from watching this show as to watching Barney Five. It is a very misleading show that I will never watch again. It’s a complete waste of time. In the caes of Kattie Mcdaniels vs William Stevens, where he ruled in favor of the coffee shop owner even though the coffee owner did not show any proof that he had in fact, lost money directly because of the plantif, nor did he show any proof that she had, in fact, gained 20 pounds. In fact, he showed NO proof at all that the employee did anything wrong. It’s not OK to have some people think that this is real law when it is so poorly written. I do believe that ALL characters are fictitiuos, especially the judge, so I place blame on the writers for the show being so bad!

  24. http://www.metnews.com/articles/2005/ross111705.htm
    The Commission on Judicial Performance yesterday ordered Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Kevin A. Ross removed from office

  25. I am more than concerned about Judge Ross’s disrespect for the 2nd Amendment. Whether this show is real or staged makes no difference. He made a comment on one episode about being a Policeman and being comfortable being the only one armed prior to his state giving out concealed carry permits. He made it seem as if 80 million gun owners in the US are incompetent to own guns. He appears to have views in tune with the anti-gun crowd blaming all gun owners for the 1% of gun owners who break the law using a gun. Forgetting the 99% who are responsible and have used guns to stop crime most often without ever firing a shot. Today he heard a case where a woman after finding a gun in a room rented on a month to month agreement felt scared and harassed the renter about getting rid of it or getting out. It was very obvious that even though the Judge ruled in the renters favor do to her not giving a eviction notice, he was on her side as to her anti-gun beliefs . The judge directly asked the gun owner why he needed a gun. Answer “for self protection”, the Judge replied, “is someone after you”, with a smirk. Gun owner replied “no”. Later the Judge asked the gun owner if the gun was loaded, the owner said “Yes”, at which the Judge rolled his eyes leaned back in his chair in obvious disapproval.. A gun for self protection is useless unloaded. I’m sure as a policeman he didn’t carry an unloaded firearm. This is a great example of a Judge using the bench to influence others to support an agenda..
    It is obvious that the Judge feels only those in Authority should be armed.. Citizens should be un-armed. It is obvious that he believes the providing of Police is justification for disarming Citizens. We all know police most often show up after the fact. I am a gun owner who has just as much right to stay alive in a confrontation with a criminal as he did as a police officer. Unless the government provides every citizen with a body guard, we are on our own until police arrive.
    ( A rich history of court decisions that found the police to have no constitutional obligation to protect individuals from private individuals.
    In 1856, the U.S. Supreme Court (South v. Maryland) found that law enforcement officers had no affirmative duty to provide such protection.
    In 1982 (Bowers v. DeVito), the Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit held, “…there is no Constitutional right to be protected by the state against being murdered by criminals or madmen.” )

  26. I totally agree, does He realy know the law at all,it seems he bases his judgments on his emotion instead of the laws.Example, the case with the so-called make-up artist who says that a friend stole $420.00 of make-up without any evidence he gave her the judgment apparently because he thought she was cute with a whole lot of bad attitude.Then a girl thathad contracted a std from her by boyfriend in which he brought no proof that he was clean or that shehad slept with any other guys, yet he tels herthat the burden of proof is on her,( I believe she had called std)and judged aginst her.What a wuss of a judge!Makes you wonder is there any justice out there.I will never watch that idiot again,no wonder people do what they want,it starts with the people that are supposed to be examples. He is on becausesome executive thougth they needed a judge that is a little cute rather than hve any sense!

  27. judge ross show is a fake, these people are all actors. does anyone else notice that 99% of the guests are all attractive. please get rid of this show. the worst judge show yet.

  28. This show makes me crazy..The judge allows people to talk over one another..I think half of his decisions are wrong..It is a shame because he seems like a good man..but GET CONTROL OF YOUR COURT ROOM..I don’t care if this is a tv show..he has a responsibility to teach people how to behave in a court room. Acting like an animal in a court room should get them kicked out..take a few notes from Judy..she may be harsh but she is fair and does not let people walk all over her.

  29. Yes, the plaintiff and defendant are portrayed by improv actors, but the facts are based on real cases. Usually people don’t like their dirty laundry aired in public, so it is quite understandable that the show needs to utilize actors for reenactments to demonstrate these cases. Trust me, in that sense it’s more real than the Jerry Springer Show or other shows that present “real people”. At least it’s based on actual cases.

  30. Anyone who watches this show, is a moron. I realized it was fake after about two minutes. America, land of the stupid. Totally out of touch with reality. Uneducated idiots who will believe anything they see on the magic flickering box. Pathetic!!

  31. OMG, I just turned this show on watched for like 5 minutes and knew immediately that they were acting. Know one hardly talks over the other and the way they just look like they are posing. LOOK at the audience know one ever laughs or cracks a smile and they never really look at the litigants. They actually look very bored (like-when do i get paid?)
    what A J0KE.

  32. This show is fake. Watch the very end of the credits! It even says “All characters are Fictitious!”

  33. This show is 100% FAKE, LOOK at the plaintiff’s and defendant’s who acts like that in real life NO ONE. Super fake usually these shows pull it off, most reality shows on TV today are all fake but some do a great job. I just stumbled upon this show today and have to say that it is 100% fake. I agree with everyone who spotted how pathetic this show is..and yes it took me about 1 minute to realize this…I guess even if he is a real judge and who cares good for him; I guess no matter who you are everyone wants a piece of the spot light even if it is at the expense of showing how you really conduct your work as a Judge.

Also look at everyone in the stands in the background look at how it is timed, look at the reactions, people do not react this way in real life…lame

  35. I just watched the show March 28 and noticed that you picked on the defendent while you let the other interrupt, talk out of turn, say what she wanted and found her right while I noticed the opposite. I feel you do not belong in the court house and should be tared, feathered and sent out of this country. And I know i am smarter than you. i design telescopes for NASA, JPL and Univ. You need to rewatch the program and fix it.

  36. I hate this guy “judge Ross” he takes offense to people and the makes his ruling due to the way he personally feels. He is worse than Judge Judy and I hate her too

  37. This judge can’t even practice law in the state of California. The only reason he can claim that he was a superior court judge was because he was a municipal judge and for some dumb reason the people in California decided that Municipal judges could take on more important cases that superior judges did. They elected to let the dumb municipal judges have way more power than they should, but Ross was made to step down after several years because his decisions were not based on the constitution. He can’t even practice law in the state of California! I assume the California bar threw him off forever! His decisions of those actor litigants are ridiculous. Ross acts like a diva. Has anyone noticed there is usually one black litigant and a white litigant with each case. Each case is totally scripted. “The gavel will come down in favor of TV viewers, and I will be replaced because my mannerisms are very irritating and I can’t act.”

  39. I stopped watching the View when I came across Judge Ross show. I was impressed with his judgments and liked his personality. I agree the writing at the end of the show goes by so fast, I never read it completely. Now that I know that it is fake, I am a little disappointed. But, it is entertaining and I like Judge Ross and I will continue to watch it.

  40. Here we are in the second season in Birmingham, AL. I tape the show and watch every one. I enjoy it, EXCEPT
    No one on this staff knows how to spell judgment!!! It is spelled (judgement) WRONG on every show all the time. Don’t any of these people have high school diplomas?

  42. This Judge is misinformed and doesnt do his homework. He siad that a man used a derogatory term by referring to a food coach as a “roach coach”. Thats what they are called! It doesnt bother anyone. They have always been called that. Check Urban Dictionary. Then he found against the local busoness owner! Almost all cities including his own have a law respecting local business to protect t he against these pirates. Does he have any idea how much it cost to run a business? Or all the liceses that are involved? Not within 500 ft. I cant believe this minority fool. If he wasnt black he wouldnt even have got into law school.

    In a non-legal context, spelling differs between countries. The spelling judgement (with e added) is common in the United Kingdom in a non-legal context. The spelling judgment without the e is however often listed first and in any case without comment or regional restriction in major UK dictionaries. In British English, the spelling judgment is correct when referring to a court’s or judge’s formal ruling, whereas the spelling judgement is used for other meanings. In American English, judgment prevails in all contexts.[9] In Canada and Australia, in a non-legal context both forms are equally acceptable, although judgment is more common in Canada and judgement in Australia. However, in a legal and theological context, judgment is the only correct form.

  45. CAN ANYONE TELL ME FOR SURE, THAT THE JUDGE ROSS T.V. COURT SHOW IS A COMPLETE FAKE? I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM SOME ONE IN THE LEGAL FIELD–AN EXPERT..
    THANK YOU.

  46. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM PEOPLE, IT IS TV, NOT THE NEWS. JUST TV SO WHAT IF IT IS FAKE. TAKE A LOOK AT THE PERTTY PEOPLE THAT SIT IB THE FRONT ROWS ON JUDGE JOE BROWN, HE IS ABOUT THE BIGGEST FAKE ON TV. LOUD. RUDE AND JUST DOWN RIGHT HATEFUL, THIS IS A SHOW THAT NEEDS TO BE OUT.

  47. I have watched reality judge shows since their inception. This show is clearly contrived and fake. I think it is very disheartening because what is the use? It takes away the credibility of all of the judge shows with real cases. Get a life. There are plenty of people out there filing court cases that would make for a better program. I guess they do not want to pay for accommodations, & the judgments that these real people get if they appear and win their cases. If Judge Ross is an accredited and real judge, I am sure he could utilize his abilities in a better and more productive way versus being a horrible actor.

  48. i CANNOT AGREE WITH YOU MORE ABOUT JOE BROWN..HE IS RUDE AND OBNOXIOUS AND ENJOYS TALKING DOWN TO PEOPLE ESPECIALLY IF THEY DO NOT HAVE A DEGREE OR A LAND OWNER..HE ALSO IS QUICK TO ATTACK NOT ONLY THE LITIGANTS THAT COME B4 HIM BUT THEIR CHILDREN AS WELL..I CAN ALSO BE SURE THAT IF ONE OF THE LITIGANT FALLS INTO ONE OF THE CATEGORIES MENTIONED ABOVE I ALREADY KNOW THE OUTCOME..HE HAS MADE UP HIS MIND BASED ON THE SOCIAL,ECONOMIC AND AESTHEIC APPEARANCE OF THE LITIGANT..HAVE NEVER RESPONDED TO A COMMENT BOARD B4 BUT JOE BROWN IS IMPRESSED WITH JOE BROWN AND FEELS THE NEED TO SHOW HIS KNOWLEDGE OF THE LAW WHICH IN ITSELF IS NOT A BAD THING BUT HIS POMPOUS, ARROGANT, MEAN SPIRIT DELIVERY LEAVES A LOT TO BE DESIRED..JUST FOR THE RECORD I DO HAVE A GRADUATE DEGREE WITH A CAREER

  49. I loved this show, until I realized it was completely fake. I’ll stick with Judge Judy and Joe Brown!

  50. Did anyone see today where they had a case of a guy who got evicted? The man’s name was Jack and he had to pretend he was gay in order to live with his two roommates, Christine and Janet. The landlady’s name was Mrs. Stanley. REALLY?? It’s the plot of Three’s Company!

  51. I was home after going to the dentist and caught this horrible show. I saw the whole 3′s company thing! It is garbage, and i felt like they were insulting my intelligence! I cant believe they were even able to keep a straight face!

  52. Today on 09/12/2011 I watched your show. The last case was about a food contest in which the guy supposedly lost because he was sick within 30 minutes of the contest. Yet food poisoning is determined to be connected with the last food in which your body digested. And that was the last food in which his body digested. Therefore he should of won the case and received the check for the $1000.00. In order to do a case a such a wide topic research should have been done. Yet it doesn’t seem as it was. So I am saying that the ruling was wrong and unjust.

  53. I enjoy Judge Ross, what I don’t enjoy is waiting for the verdict only to receive a wrong one from a different case. Since Feb.of 2011 there have been over 25 wrong verdicts given. Isn’t anyone editing or monitoring this program. These problems need to be addressed. Thank you! Will this comment take care of the problem? Do I need to contact someone else? I find this very frusterating.

  54. Umm, the diclaimer at the end of the show and many other shows, including operation repo, is a standard disclaimer that many shows and movies use so they cannot be sued by anyone for defamation, by a company or bussiness. For example, if a person on the show says he works for a certain company, and then acts immature or irresponsible, that looks bad on the company he works for because they hired him, so with that disclaimer, the company that person works for cannot sue the show. The disclaimer started in 1932 when the russian princess sued MGM for a movie in which a character resembled her

  56. THIS SHOW SUCKS!! This judge is sooo wrong in a lot of his rulings. I am an advocate for law and watch some of the other shows like Mathis and the others. His principles are not sound in fact he even is a hypocrite. In one of his cases he literally went off and humiliated a young man for saying “do you feel me” but just on another case he was saying it. I dont like this show at ALL it is FAKE!!

  57. It is a scripted show with actors. Just go to their Internet Movie Database page http://www.imdb.com and you will see it lists the plantiffs/defendents and then it lists the actors who played them! lol

  58. I came across this show(Judge Ross)and decided to watch. Once again I was disappointed!! Once again we see the legal system meeting out unfair and unequal “Justice” to father’s who try to be a part of their childrens’ life. In my practice I have seen rulings go against men just because the child’s mother is upset because he has moved on and has someone else in his life. Judge Ross should be more concern with legal rulings and not building ratings.

  59. Although I like Judge Ross, the actors in the cases seem to have fake emotions. It is as if they are actors instead of real litigants.

  60. I watched the show for the first time today and it seemed scripted. I Googled the show with those words in my description to see if anyone else felt this way. Then I came across this thread. Apparently, I’m not the only one that feels this way.

  61. Not much has changed in nearly a year. Agreed: this show is phony and has to go….

  62. This judge is vering BORING…Monotone..And his verdicts are outrageous. I just watched the one where the 16 year old got a belly piercing and he believed her over the piercer. Give me a break, the girl lied. He een said it himself that what she said did not make sense. But he ruled for her anyway.. Please take this CRAP off the air>>

  63. Unfortunately the whole thing is fake. The stories are just that fictional stories. The litigants are paid actors and the judge was disbarred in 2006.

  64. WHY in the world would ANYONE want to watch a “reality” show wher actors portray “real” people ? I just don’t get it !

  65. This show is on in NYC at 3:30 am and I tape it every night and enjoy it as my wake up show. He is a cute judge and I enjoy the show…all of these shows are for ENJOYMENT ONLY!!
    THANX JUDGE ROSS!!

  66. This is so fake. Terrible actors!

  67. Ryan,
    how educated are yoy? do you have a BA, masters or doctorate? If so, why are you sitting at home watching the uneducated as you say? people need common sense and where is yours? judge and be not judged? God forbid!

  68. Worst Judge i’ve ever seen…needs his butt kicked……

  69. I am a lawyer. This show is fake and the judge is just plain wrong a lot of the time. The show about that idiot couple who wanted their money back for a holiday rental because the landlord had ‘failed’ to disclose the ‘fact’ it was haunted, said it all…. Give us a break.
    Judge Judy rules.

  71. Yes, You’re Right. The litigants on Judge Ross all actors and the evidence that they present is so FAKE. This show definitely won’t be on long.
    Guarantee it!!

  72. Yes. The litigants on Judge Ross are all actors. Watch closely. All of the cases are rehearsed and scripted. I knew something was not right because all of the litigants I’ve seen on his show seemed so polished. They all appear to be performances. And notice that, unlike other judge shows, they do not give you a number to call or a website to visit if you would like your case heard in front of Judge Ross. That’s because these are not real cases.

  74. This is the most stupid and fake show I have seen, except for the repo show…
    TAKE IT OFF!

  75. I totally agree. On todays episode there was a Mr.Leiland Spicer and he has been on numerous reality TV shows and other judge shows. I find it hard to believe that Kevin Ross cannot find legitimate cases to litigate. I am writing in because this gentlemen for a fact has been on numerous reality shows and the staff on the Judge Ross who should really do their research thorougly before booking a case.

  76. It’s so obviously fake. The people “overact” and poorly at that. Watch the exaggerated facial expressions, the controlled speech the way you would trying to remember a line. Weird subjects, too like spouse-swapping and hoarding.

  77. at the end in the credits, it say any similarity to anyone living or dead is purely coincidental.. that means fake

  78. I just watched this program for the first time and it will be my last. Just watched the case where a mother was sueing a substitute teacher for supposedly im=nappropriately touching her son in music class. This mother was the most phony person I’ve ever see. She said her 12 year old son was so traumatized that he had to go to therapy. The judge didn’t even ask what the supposed touching was and the police and school said was unfounded. Then he awarded the mother. What a bunch of crap. Whoever decided this guy would be a good judge for a tv show is just plain nuts. Please get him off the air.

  79. I don’t like the way today’s show went
    11/16/2011. The woman was clearly trying to get something for nothing and he allowed her to do just that. I don’t like this show at all . It just happened to be on when I walked in .

  80. I agree, this Judge is TERRIBLE! I just watched a show where he r\uled in favor of the defendent just because the plaintiff got on “his nerves”. This show needs to go!! Hes an embarassment

  81. yeah I do understand, why you choose judge ross over the view, because you don’t want to live in the real world, Ross is so fake and bad so it really hurts, no give me the view anytime and Judge Judy and the peoples court with Millian. From a viewer in Denmark

  82. When I first saw the show I thought he looks handsome but as soon as he got angry (which seems to be every show) I felt he had no idea what he was doing. He is too young and immature. He acts on his emotions instead of common sense.
    I think he should get a job on a ‘soap’ Or he and judge Judy can get in a boxing ring and see who’s the meanest. I’ll stick to JJBrown or J Mathis.

  83. I think the judge talks more than he listens– and I suspect that some if not all of the litigants are actors. The case today was where a woman looked into a man’s email and spread rumours about him causing him to lose clients. The judge ruled against the man saying that the woman reasonably believed the rumours and thus didn’t not defame him. I’m not a lawyer however this is not unlike breaking and entering a person’s private domain and using his private information to hurt him. I question Judge Ross’ judgement.

  84. I like the Ross show. I didn’t realize it is more drama than reality, but I don’t really mind. He’s very good…and he’s a real judge. So, OK. What I don’t like is that physical evidence like photos which might make the case more interesting, are never shown. There’s a screen; why isn’t it being used ?????

  85. the show is 100% fake. when the show goes off, look at the credits…..it specifically states: ” All charactersand events depicted in this work are fictitious and any resemblance to real persons, living or dead is purely coincidental”.
    Therefore the show is FAKE!!!!

  86. I’ve been watching judge shows since the very early DIVORCE COURT in the 1960′s. This starred the late Raynond St. Jacques as the judge. Same set up. Same type seemingly real litigants. It was a show and a vehicle for many struggling actors. One of my mother’s friends was a bit player from the old days and made many appearnces as different characters on this court show. The residuals were welcome supplements.
    I just noticed the explanation at the end about a week ago. Although shocked, I quickly remembered the old Divorce Court show and thought how smart of Byrum Allen to bring back this old concept, of which most younger generations never knew existed. It’s merely giving exposure to more actual cases brought to the public by actors. The presentation mimics the “real” court programs excellently. THAT’S WHY WE ALL FELT SHOCKED, DUPED OR WHATEVER WHEN THE LIGHT BULB WENT OFF THIS WAS JUST ENTERTAINMENT.
    Thanks Byrum I need a breather from so darn much reality t.v. Also thanks for providing more outlets for actor’s to work.
    Oh yeah, to all the disappointed viewers you do know all reality t.v. is “guided”,
    set up, influenced for shots, reactions,etc. Overkill of booze provided for certain desired behaviors for our viewing pleasure. You did’nt think it just all miraculously happened and somehow the camera just happened to be right there to give us the fly on the wall perspective—–did you?
    Can’t wait for the next guily pleasure on t.v. (“My Strange Addiction” anyone)?

  87. I am a fan of all “Judge” shows and so was happy to see that Judge Ross would precede Judge Mathis and Judge Joe Brown. After watching his “show” this week (12/26/12) I am so disappointed that today (12/27/12) will be the last time that I watch his show. His ruling is so confusing, if Tennessee law states that as person can defend their “castle” why was the teenager awarded the outrageous sum of $25000!!!!! Judge Brown, Mathis, Shiedlin, etc. would have least ruled that both sides were responsible for their actions, therefore awarding only 50%. AND as if the teen won’t be playing “ding dong ditch”, it only proved that you can get away with things with no consequences. Does Judge Ross have any children? What message is he teaching them?

  88. Oh my, lighten up! Great looking judge, entertaining (even with disclaimer)… if you want to study law, “go for it”. If you want to be entertained watch Judge Ross, :^}

  89. 8:30 a.m. Chicago time, January 12th 2012, airing on channel 26 (wciu) “The U”, Judge Ross awarded decision to plaintiff , in a parking lot accident, when looking at both cars, and their damage, clearly indicates that the plaintiff was travelling at a high rate of speed, and was obviously responsible for the accident. There was one key point that was not acknowledged: position of both cars after impact (plaintiff had no pictures at all for evidence, conveniently).

  90. 8:30 a.m. Chicago time, January 12th 2012, airing on channel 26 (wciu) “The U”, Judge Ross awarded decision to plaintiff , in a parking lot accident, when looking at both cars, and their damage, clearly indicates that the plaintiff was travelling at a high rate of speed, and was obviously responsible for the accident. There was one key point that was not acknowledged: position of both cars after impact (plaintiff had no pictures at all for evidence, conveniently).

  91. I have never seen a worse show! The judge is NOT a judge, the defendants and the plaintiffs are only actors doing a lousy job of acting, and the law is clearly not applied in most cases, so what service does this awful show serve? Even the ads promoting the show are in bad taste. The latest one exclaiming ” he was awake and was aroused” shows the mentality of the writers and producers!

  92. I tried to watch his show, and all along I thought something was wrong. He didn’t preside over cases well. I felt he was wrong on most cases, like today’s show. He was so wrong. Thanks for clearing this fake show up!!

  93. Boss Ross Rocks!!!!

  94. You r so right his decssions r like something on a move.I just watch something he did which any of judge would never had did ,it says entertainment. I only watch it because that’t the only thing on.

  95. as phony as the day is lonbg
    i cant believe that people actually act like this is real life
    pathetic

  96. I must admit you are a very fair judge 99% of the time. You are serious and don’t blow smoke up peoples butts if I may say that. I love it when you say ” I got this” or you are stunningly misinformed. You and your show are REAL. Keep up the great work Judge Ross.
    The most funniest case was when the mexican man went fishing and the boy was left to defend himself agains that dog who broke off the chain. The boy was trapped in this car junk yard for 48 hrs. He couldn’t leave because he was trapped by that vicious dog( funny but not really funny) lol
    keeping it real,
    Charlese (shar lease)

  97. Don’t you know that the show is fictitious – NOT REAL! This is stating at the end of each program.

  98. I accidentally just saw part of this show. What an anti-gay a-hole egomaniac!
    He actually refers to himself in 3rd person as “The Ross Boss”??
    What a joke. More dumbo TV for dumbo Americans.

  99. Hey, dingdong – “Judge” Ross isn’t even a judge. He got kicked off the bench for violating constitutional rights and pimping his lame TV show.
    He’s as big a fraud as there is – and anyone who likes this drek is proof positive that America is littered with morons.

  100. You’re not very bright, are you?

  101. You may be a “judge” but you need more education Your grammar is horrible. It’s “inedible,” not “unedible.” It’s “she and her husband, not “her and her husband.” Can’t recall your other
    errors, but you’ve made them. Shameful!

  102. Terrible grammar. It’s “inedible,” not “unedible.” It’s ‘she and her husband, not “her and her husband.” You’ve also made other grammatical errors.

  103. I want to know how he got his own show in the first place because I read an article that he was disbarred in 2005. He is not allowed to practice law in the state of CA ever again.

  104. I can’t stand this show, if this is the way he ruled when he was a real judge it’s no wonder he was removed from the bench and lost his license to practice law. This link tells how incompetent he was
    http://www.metnews.com/articles/2005/ross111705.htm
    He “ruled” today in favor of a defendant even though she assaulted a man, Kevin Ross is a joke who does not know the law. Judge Judy would laugh at him. This stupid show should be cancelled because “boss” Ross makes a mockery of the law.

  105. No he is not a real judge, he was disbarred and lost his law license because he violated the law.

  106. Are you kidding me. He makes a husband pay for his wife to have dancing lessons and sex with another man. Total crap it has to be fake. No wonder he was disbarred

  107. Kevin Ross is a fake ass clown and the actors are beyond lame Byron allen and kevin ross are pathetic morons! Ross being a republican doesn’t surprise me at all! that whole party is fake as santa claus!!

  108. This show is so fake. Does anyone ever notice Ross wears the same blue shirt and red tie….his show needs to go

  109. Just watch CourtTV and leave the other court shows alone and your blood pressure will thank you. These shows are for entertainment and apparently it’s working!…Makes me want to figure out how to get me one of these “reality” shows and make some money…lol

  110. I have taken the names of litigants at the beginning of People’s Court and entered them in Facebook … I can locate about 90% of them. In America’s Court, I have yet to find ONE real name. On America’s Court the names are always easy names such as Smith, Jones, Johnson, Brooks while People’s Court has difficult and foreign spelled names. This should tell you something in itself.

  111. I was off and it happened to be on tv. My first thought was that he was straight up gay and who would come on a show like that to let this little diva man throw a hissy fit at you. I couldn’t believe what I was watching. I figured it was fake as well as he. I won’t be tuning in to gay court. If I want to see a real Bit@@ and not a fake wanna be I’d watch Judge Judy

  112. Commercials, Commercials, Commercials too dam many Commercials, I know the show is phony and the Judge is animated, but those dam Commercials, Commercials, Commercials, I hate so I tape the show and fast forward through those Dam Commercials, Commercials, Commercials etc.

  113. I would like to know where you get your info from. You sound like an idiot! Judge Ross show is excellent and real. He is a real judge! You probably are just plain jealous!
    I happen to love him and his show.

  114. Judge Ross is an excellent Judge. He very bright, smart and extremely intelligent. It’s just a TV show. All of you have nothing better to do is just complain instead of spending your time doing something concrete. Volunteer your services at a hospital to the elderly, visit a senior citizens assistant living facility and show them how to use the computer, take someone on a wheel chair walk, etc., just to name of few. You guys just sit on your laptops, computers, and write this junk. We as seniors can use your help. It’s unbelievable! Stop writing and spending valuable time writing unwarranted complaints and come show us how to use all of this updated technology.
