You wouldn't want to swap places with the guy for anything in the world. As he stands before Judge Judith Sheindlin, he almost seems to be trembling under the onslaught of her words. This middle-aged man has come to Sheindlin's court as a plaintiff. He and his fiancee, the defendant, have broken off their engagement, and he wants his ring back.

A former senior producer of the "Judge Judy" show contends in a lawsuit that he was wrongfully fired for complaining that black litigants were being excluded from the syndicated TV series. In a complaint filed this week in L.A. Superior Court, Jonathan Sebastien is seeking unspecified compensatory and general damages from the show and CBS Paramount Network Television. Representatives for the program and Paramount could not be reached for comment.

The thunder is rolling. Judgment day is coming. And not a moment too soon for KCBS Channel 2. Station executives are hoping that ratings lightning will strike with the addition today of "Judge Judy." The hit syndicated courtroom show, which has aired locally on KCAL Channel 9 since its debut four years ago, will join the KCBS lineup at 4 p.m. as a lead-in to the station's struggling news block.

Judge Judy Sheindlin reaped a payout of $25 million a year for four years when she signed a new contract for her syndicated daily court show, "Judge Judy," according to the New York Post's Page 6. That figure would put her in the top pay ranks for TV performers. The big payday is presumably reward for the show's strong ratings; it led the field among the many court shows on the air. Spokesmen for Paramount Television, the show's distributor, weren't available for comment over the holiday.

She's a gavel-wielding phenomenon who rules her TV courtroom with a no-nonsense style. But on Friday, Judge Judy occupied another seat in court: the witness stand. Her Honor, also known as Judith Sheindlin, was called to testify in a civil dispute involving producers Sandi Spreckman and Kaye Switzer, the professed creators of "The Judge Judy Show." The two have no argument with Sheindlin, but rather with their lawyer, Fred Fenster.
