The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Cynthia Gorden filed a lawsuit in May asking a judge to prevent the airing of her appearance on a syndicated television courtroom show. Litigants audition to appear in the raucous courtroom setting to make their arguments and allow Judge Mathis to render a decision. According to request, Gorden embarrassed herself when she came on the program aggressively suing her own mother. Evidently Judge Mathis didn’t take too kindly to her motive or method. It seems to me that Gordon needs to learn a lesson we all could use: if you make your bed with a skunk, don’t be surprised if you smell like one! This is Just-A-Minute.
