A viral clip posted online earlier this week shows Judge Judy Sheindlin dispensing ruff justice in her daytime courtroom.


Judge Judy presided over a canine custody battle where the plaintiff claimed a beautiful pooch named Baby Boy was his, despite the defendant's assertion that she purchased the dog legally on "the street."

The flummoxed judge asked for the dog to enter the courtroom and when Baby Boy excitedly jumps at the plaintiff's feet, Judge Judy issued her ruling in seconds.


"It's his dog," she said.

Snuggles and cuddles were given and tears were shed in the most heartwarming reunion a television courtroom has ever seen.
