Judge Judy Producer To Face A Different Judge

Peter Brennan, creator and exec producer of Judge Judy, has filed suit against Viacom Inc., Paramount Television Group, Spelling Entertainment and Big Ticket Pictures, claiming that they conspired to cheat him, the New York Post reported today (Tuesday). Among Brennan's charges: that Judge Judy Sheindlin receives more money than he does, despite a clause in his contract that stipulates that if anyone else connected with the show is offered a better deal, he qualifies for the same deal.
