Judge Judy is being sued over some pricey dishes she purchased form one of her producers, TMZ is reporting.

According to the report, Randy Douthit sold Judge Judith Sheindlin china after he split from wife Patric Jones.

The suit states the tableware bought by Judge Sheindlin was worth more than $500,000 but she bought it for $50,000.

In the lawsuit, Jones claims Judge Sheindlin and Douthit entered into a fraudulent scheme to prevent Jones from obtaining the dishes in the divorce.

Jones is seeking the dishes or their value. However, Judge Judy told TMZ to her knowledge no such lawsuit exists.

“I have not seen any complaint by the former Mrs. Douthit, however, I don’t owe this lady a cent,” she said. “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.”
