    Who would dare sue Judge Judith Sheindlin?! Her producer's ex, that's who.

    The Judge Judy star was slapped with a lawsuit over some (really) expensive china today at Los Angeles County Superior Court from Patric Jones, the former spouse of her producer Randall Douthit. In the documents, Jones claims that her ex sold the china to Judge Judy at one-tenth of value.

    The suit for the return of property states that the Christofle Mary Bone China was community property, but that Douthit sold it to Sheindin for $50,000, when it's actual retail value is $514,421.14.

    Yes, you read that right.

    Jones claims this sale was a scheme where her ex-husband conspired with Judge Judy to cut her out of the sale of their community property, and adds that Sheindlin, who is an actual Family Law judge, knew that this type of sale required both spouses' written consent. 

    However, Judge Judy tells E! News, "I have not seen any complaint by the former Mrs. Douthit, however, I don't owe this lady a cent. And if this 50-year-old woman would spend her time more productively at trying to find a job, instead of abusing the judicial system with frivolous lawsuits, we would all be a lot better off."

    Jones is asking for the china returned, $500,000 in punitive damages and court costs.
