Televisions Judge Judy filed a lawsuit Wednesday against a Connecticut personal-injury lawyer, alleging that he used her image without authorization in advertisements that falsely suggested she had endorsed his firm.
The lawsuit filed in federal court seeks more than $75,000 in damages from Hartford attorney John Haymond and his firm.
Judith Sheindlin, a retired Family Court judge who has starred in Judge Judy for 18 years, said this is the first time she has filed a lawsuit against anyone. She said the unauthorized use of her name and image is outrageous and requires action.

Good. She obviously is doing this on principle. She makes 25 million a year on Judge Judy so 75,000 dollars is like twenty minutes for her at most.
