Judge Rinder

Judge Rinder

Postby Spankymonkey » Sat Oct 15, 2016 11:34 am

Has anyone else watched this interminable show. A cross between Judge Judy and Lord Hee-Haw.

All I want to know is exactly what kind of 'courtroom' it's supposed to be and how any of the judgements could be considered binding. Surely it's nothing more than a glorified form of arbitration.

It is a television court for televisual entertainment.
I would guess that perhaps they sign a contract agreeing to be bound by the decision of the presenter, but I imagine that could be dodgy ground: I assume arbitration is covered by some sort of regulation?

No but the there are both Jewish and moslem arbitration systems which work in similar ways

There are a number of Arbitration Acts. Amongst other things, they make arbitration awards enforceable, and limit the circumstances in which arbitrators' decisions may be challenged.

There are also numerous international treaties relating to arbitration, and a number of recognised courts of arbitration.

According to Wikipedia "Judge Rinder acts as an arbitrator in a form of binding arbitration."

One of the episodes I watched, he said to one of the claimants / contestants. "You don't need to tell me. I'm a barrister." Which is funny because I could swear it said 'Judge' in great big brass letters on the front of his bench. Which is he I wonder?

I once entered an online competition to find a name for fans of Judge Rinder. I suggested "Rinderpests".

I wonder how many people who watch this rubbish think this is how judges behave in county court. Like some village elder dividing the spoils of a tribal dispute. And how does he get away with calling himself a Judge when he isn't one?

If I set up a youtube channel and called myself barrister Spanky - without actually being one - then started dishing out a load of entertaining sanctimony palmed off as litigation - do you think Rinder or anyone else from his profession would object?
