Kenny Kramer was supposed to do a benefit for the non profit of my choice. he never did that. After the show I was snubbed and not even given a video tape.

No Judge Judy was Not the first real judge on TV to try cases. There was the judge on the TV show; Divorce Court and the judge on the People's Court. Back in the 1950s, there were probably a lot of cheap shows, with real judges trying cases on TV, because the networks are always interested in programs that don't cost a lot of money and bring in the ratings. I doubt if Judge Judy is even the first woman judge to have her own tv show. TV has been around since the end of the 1940s. There have been a lot of shows that have aired in the last 60 years.
