(LOS ANGELES) — The lawsuit filed against Judge Judy Sheindlin by the ex-wife of one of her producers has been settled.
Patric Jones claimed in her lawsuit that her ex-husband, Randy Douthit, and Sheindlin conspired on a plan for him to sell the TV star the ex-couple’s china and flatware for $50,000 — more than $450,000 less than what Jones stated they are worth.
Jones’ lawyer now tells TMZ.com that the case has been settled. Jones will have the china and flatware returned to her, and she will pay her ex $12,500.
Scheindlin had told TMZ on Friday that she would give back the china and flatware to her producer, but added, “This very unpleasant lady doesn’t give a hoot about dishes. She cares about pressuring her ex-husband and the way to do that is to attempt to embarrass me.”
