    Default kroqken to appear on Judge Judy on January 18, 2018

    Our own kroqken is making yet another TV appearance, this time on Judge Judy.

    It will take place on January 18. Check your local listings, and get that DVR ready.

    The official description reads, "When a rent-control tenant goes up against a large property owner and loses, he seeks damages from his illegal tenant."

    However, that's not entirely correct. He actually WON against the property owner, and this suit is against his roommate.

    Here's the real background:

    Ken has been a rent control tenant in Los Angeles since 1995.

    He added an unofficial roommate in September 2015. The building management was aware of this guy, and in fact made contact with him during repairs, and never once demanded he officially be added to the lease. By Los Angeles city law, that makes the guy an official tenant after 60 days or being known to the landlord.

    When the building was for sale in May 2017 (20 months after this guy moved in), they decided to try dirty tricks to evict Ken, so as to increase the building's value. Ken's unit would fetch $2100 on the open market, but currently only pays $1100, so that's $12,000 per year difference in rent!

    They claimed they had no idea of this roommate (LIE), gave him a backdated three day notice (so as to make it look like he already refused to get rid of the roommate), and filed for eviction.

    Through both my guidance and a good attorney, Ken beat the eviction case.

    However, his cocksucker freeloader roommate started refusing to pay rent during the eviction proceedings, yet refused to move out. The guy stayed there for months rent-free, not understanding that Ken would be responsible for the rent whether he won or lost the eviction case! (When you're being evicted, you are temporarily not required to pay rent, but it accumulates and you have to pay it when the case is over, even if you lose.)

    The building eventually evicted this roommate, but Ken stayed (this was the result of the eviction case).

    Ken sued the roommate for the back rent -- $2500, for the months of May, June, July, August, and September 2017 ($500 each).

    Judge Judy contacted them and offered to take the case instead, and both accepted.

    I will not reveal what happened. You can watch on the 18th.

    You can see a 20-second preview on http://judgejudy.com -- click on Thursday. This doesn't seem to work on phones, so you'll need your computer to see it.

    my co-worker has been in his 3 bedroom apartment in west hollywood for about 27 years.. pays $1100. For some reason they've never tried to buy him out, but he still has the original carpet from when he moved in LOL.

    **** SPOILER ALERT ****

    Do not read if you haven't watched the episode yet.

    ----------------------------------------------


    My girlfriend refused to watch it in full because Judge Judy was so grating and unfair to Ken.

    But most shocking about this whole situation is the fact that she was completely ignorant regarding standard eviction proceedings in California (where she lives).

    She claimed that he "refused to pay rent" in May. He claimed that the landlord can't accept rent during the eviction proceedings, and that they refused to take his May rent and returned it to him.

    She told him that he had no proof of this, and that "every landlord would take the rent" during the eviction proceedings.



    In California, once an eviction is filed, you cannot collect any rent or it terminates the entire eviction. In fact, some clever tenants use this trick against inexperienced landlords to kill eviction proceedings and force the landlord to start over (or in some cases, such as unpaid rent, being unable to file again).

    The fact that she raked Ken over the coals for "not paying rent" when it's required for the landlord not to accept it is... well, amazing.

    I had no idea she was that ignorant of the law. Read this if you don't believe me: http://www.dailyrepublic.com/solano-...ction-process/

    I gave Ken some guidance beforehand regarding what to say.

    To his credit, while he was a little too passive, he generally did a good job getting these points out, and he explained them clearly.

    Judge Judy was acting as if she were the attorney of Ken's building, rather than an impartial judge.

    The perplexing thing is the fact that this wasn't even about the building, AND Ken already won the eviction case!

    The courts RULED IN KEN'S FAVOR on the eviction matter, so therefore she should have accepted that as fact (that's how courts work), and not twisted the situation into something it wasn't.

    Furthermore, even if Ken had lost the eviction, he would still have owed the back rent. The roommate continued to live there and refused to leave, so he also should have owed half the back rent, which Ken proved she paid.

    I think she was also trying to make the point that Ken was freerolling the building by only paying the back rent once he won the eviction, so therefore the roommate was also doing the same thing, and that Ken only paid because he was the one staying.

    But that's bullshit, because the building COULD NOT ACCEPT THE RENT during those months, but Ken would still owe it no matter what.

    Ken kept repeating that the guy lived there for free for 5 months, which was the meat of the case, but Judy ignored it and just kept ranting about how he was scamming the building -- something Ken already proved in real court wasn't true

    Watching this whole thing was like watching Ken try to reason with a crotchety, senile old woman whose mind was made up before any words were spoken.

    Every minute spent not chasing paper is a minute lost in my book; but if you want to lament Ken's life, by all means.

    So what's the point of all this other than "entertainment"? Does anything legitimate come of her ignorance?

    Wow. I couldn't watch the whole thing either. What a shrew. Let me guess, it's on FOX... is she a right-wing republican neocon? Or is she just senile? It doesn't even make for good entertainment.

    Long time ago I heard there is $5000 in total payable to the 2 parties for appearing. The judgement is taken out of that and the remaining balance is split between the two parties. Been awhile so not sure if that’s it.

    I also heard she powers through and films a years worth of shows in a month or two, takes in something like $50 million.

    Edit: works 52 Days a year, $900,000 per day, $47 million per year is her contract. God fucking damn!

    The bailiff, who does jack shit, pulls in a million.

    All that money that Ken lost could have bought a lot of Winchell's donuts. I hope he can scrape up enough money for Coachella! I was surprised that Judge Judy did not know KROQ Ken was a star. She treated him like an average Joe. And to say he was a scammer was treasonous.
