Judge Judy hears first case involving Grindr
Judge Judy has heard her first case involving two men who met on gay hook-up app Grindr.
She may be a wise old soul, but gay dating app Grindr is one thing Judge Judy had not heard about, until this case, that is.
Twenty-three year old Student Adam Murphy was being sued by a 47-year old plaintiff for unpaid loans. Murphy claimed the money was a gift.
When Murphy was questioned on how the two men met, awkwardness ensued as the defendent attempted to explain the scenario to the Judge.
"Um, we met on a, um...social website," Murphy said. "Um, it's actually called Grindr...Grindr, it's an app. For your phone or your iPad. It's a social app that tells you where homosexual males are and their proximity. To where you are."
Probing further in an attempt to clarify exactly why Murphy was on the app Judy asked:
"You went on this website to find someone who had the same sexual predisposition as you?"
"No it was just to make friends," Murphy stated.
Judge Judy wasn't buying this and subsequently delivered an acidic one-liner leaving the audience to laugh.
"If I was looking to make friends I wouldn't go on just a website for little old Jewish ladies," Judy said.
The case was dismissed based on the fact the plaintiff had given Murphy the money with no reasonable expectation to be repaid.
