  5. Judge Judy Sheindlin:

    The fact that Richard Lawrence is complaining about my salary is actually hilarious, i met Mr. Lawrence for 2 hours some 21years ago. Neither I nor anyone involved in the day-to-day production of my program has heard from him in 20 years. Not a card, not a gift, not a flower, not a congratulations. Yet he has somehow received over $17,000,000 from my program. My rudimentary math translates that into $8,500,000 an hour for Mr. Lawrence. Not a bad payday. Now complaining about not getting enough money, that’s real chutzpah!
