How Judge Judy decided where a dog belonged. Oliver Gettell:
A woman claims to have legally purchased the dog in question, while the opposing litigant maintains that the animal is his. To get to the bottom of the mystery, Sheindlin orders the diminutive dog be carried into the courtroom and then turns it loose.
Shades of King Solomon in the Bible.
As soon as the dog hits the ground, it scampers over to the male litigant and bounces up and down in excitement.
The verdict from Judge Judy?
It’s his dog. That’s all, take the dog home.
