Judge Judy Show Named In Lawsuit

Published on January 10, 2008 with No Comments

US TV show Judge Judy has a policy of racial screening, according to a new lawsuit.

Jonathan Sebastien, a former senior producer who worked on the popular programme for seven years, claims he was wrongfully dismissed in March 2007 after he complained black litigants were excluded from appearing on the show.

Sebastien’s lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, also alleges he was “berated and mocked” for raising his complaint, before he was fired on 30 March.

He claims his supervisor Randy Douthit told producers: “We’re not doing any more black shows. I don’t want to hear no black language on the TV. I don’t want to hear black people arguing.”

Sebastien, who doesn’t name host Judy Sheindlin in his legal action, is seeking unspecified damages from Douthit, CBS, Paramount and Big Ticket Television.
