Judge Judy is no longer a real Judge. Shes a TV judge which is not the same thing. And no, judges are technically not allowed to break the law. Whether she actually broke the law remains to be seen. There are two sides to every story and her accuser is no innocent princess. Judge Judy also has the legal right to the assumption of innocent until proven guilty. Considering the judge is both rich and famous the accuser could merely be a gold digging glory hog looking to get her fifteen minutes of fame at the judges expense. Who knows until theres a TRIAL?
Technically we are all supposed to be held to the laws of the land and no one is exempt. However, you will see that is not always the case. In the past 2 years I've seen a Judge, police and lawyers walk after being busted smuggling heroin. Multiple polititions have been busted drinking and driving and most don't lose their licences, like you and I would. Its a spit in the face of our legal system! They are basically showing us that with money and connections, you CAN be above the law :(
