‘Judge Judy’ Profits Fight Gets Another Spinoff

With a help of a mediator earlier this year, a lawsuit over profits for ‘Judge Judy’ was settled. Or was it?

On Tuesday, Rebel Entertainment Partners filed another lawsuit against CBS and its Big Ticket Entertainment division.

“In 2015, Moonves and his loyal lieutenant [Armando] Nuñez seriously underestimated the value of the library and sold the rights to these episodes to series star Judith Sheindlin for a song,” wrote attorney Bryan Freedman in the complaint. The judge-turned-star knew she was “sitting on a gold mine,” however, and Rebel claims when Moonves learned she was shopping it for around $200 million he realized “he would look like an incompetent buffoon” if the CBS board of directors found out.
