RE: Courtroom TV Shows like Judge Judy

The winner is paid from funds set up for the show. So does that mean that the losers, end up getting away with whatever the crime was because the TV show pays the settlement and not the loser in the case? How do the criminals in a case, get held accountable, if they don't have to pay for their crime?

Judge Judy doesn't do criminal cases. They're all civil cases about money or property that are more about entertaining you than justice.

She's selling advertising not enforcing the law.
