    Anyone see Judge Judy today - damages from an ND

    Quick summary, this guy is going to a party with 2 girls and his brother. He said it wasn't a safe place so he decided to take his gun, as he called a Smith & Wesson 40 S&W. (He showed a photo of it and it was a S&W Sigma) Since he didn't have a CCW he was carrying it open.

    They were leaving the party and he was driving since according to him the girls were drunk and he only had a couple of beers and was fine to drive. He had removed the pistol from the holster and put it on the console. It was making the girls uncomfortable and as he went to move it or clear it (it was a murky story at this point) he pulled the trigger and shot the dashboard and windshield.

    He had previously paid for the windshield but the girl was suing for the dashboard. JJ didn't rule in her favor since the girl kept saying she was uncomfortable with the guy and the gun so why did she get in the car in the first place?

    Here is the case: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUocgAF9HGI

    Most people on judge judy are idiots. They sound no different. Just jerry springer in a fake courtroom

    Sounds like the guy was drunker then he wants to admit,I would question whe he removed the gun from the holster and sat it on top of the console,Either way he had to of put his booger hook on the bang switch and pulled with enough force to discharge the gun,either way he is totally responsible for the damages,Just cause she has an opinion doesn't mean it's legally correct,that's why people appearing before her have to sign forms agreeing to abide by her decisions

    Pretty much a mess of things. Criminal court, small claims, TV? At this point, everyone involved has missed a lot. Suing for damages? Maybe we should all make it a class action lawsuit (CCCC [concerned concealed carry citizens] vs idgets) to keep these kinds of folks from carrying or appearing on TV in a circus court, and giving us all a bad rep? Wouldn't that be something? Bet we could find an attorney to take the case. Class action lawsuit against irresponsible carriers. Where do we have to go to get it started.....and how many will show up or sign on? Judge Judy........maybe I'll take an online course from Phoenix University and become a judge myself. Then we could hold our own virtual court of law right here on the forum! All damages recovered would go to support the forum with a bonus pistol giveaway for members only twice a year. Wouldn't that be something. Okay....my mind is working overtime on this ordeal. Help me get through the online course and we'll collectively sue these idgets that seem intent on making our life as upstanding concealed carriers more difficult. I swear to uphold all of our principles and to eradicate all stupidity that might infringe on our rights and what we've obtained....and to further the cause unto others that have the same basic moral intentions.
    Vote for me this November 2nd....it's a small price to pay for a whole lot more!
    LOL! (think about it)

    Sounds like an idiot who shouldn't be anywhere near a firearm since he doesn't know how to act with one.

    This is how Judge Judy works. It is entertainment, not court. Both parties are paid a certain amount to make fools out of themselves.
    They both agree in advance to the rules which include to not pursue this further legally. Whoever wins gets part of the losers stipend. (not much).
    There is no law involved.

    Good thing it wasn't a 10mm, it would have left the engine strewn across the intersection and the entire front end would have vaporized.

    This calls for common sense gun control!!!! A holster. You can't control a handgun on the dash.

    Well they were uncomfortable to begin with and him putting it on the console just escalated. He kept assuring them he was trained and knew what he was doing.

    As tkruf said this idiot shouldn't be anywhere near a firearm. As he was talking I got the impression that he was just wearing it to try and impress the ladies. He certainly left an impression, thankfully it was only to their car.

    ooh, it's online now. There is all sorts of wrong with their thought process and state of mind. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUocgAF9HGI

    I guess it wouldn't matter much if the car had a glove box since he can't keep his finger off the trigger.

    At least JJ isn't a free for all like some of the other shows, she runs a pretty tight ship. Besides after watching idiots like that on TV your life doesn't seem so bad. :)
