Did anyone see Judge Judy today by chance? Star Wars memorabilia collector Tristan Moriuchi was suing prop replica sculptor Zach Kinnard (who makes helmets and other costume items) for not returning his merchandise or refunding his money. Both are extensive Star Wars collectors. What's interesting however is that due to legal constraints (cough, cough Lucasfilm Ltd. likely) the Judge Judy show was UNABLE to show any of the Star Wars brand visually on live television, which clearly irritated Judge Judy. So she handled the case in a manner where she had the two litigants go outside the court room to resolve it by themselves. Did they come to an agreement? If you missed the episode, try and find it online because it was a riot.
