Wapner writes about winning

Remember Judge Wapner?

He is, perhaps, the most famous judge in American history -- at least American television history. Joseph A. Wapner was the first presiding judge of the real-life courtroom-style television show “The People's Court,” which aired 2,484 episodes between 1981 and 1993.

We haven’t heard much from the former TV personality lately. (In fact, Wapner’s lack of recent publicity has landed him on the “Dead or Alive Info” website, where Internet surfers can go to find out when or if a once-famous -- or at least semi-famous -- person has passed away.)
It appears that the now 88-year-old jurist is alive and well, having just launched his new book, “The Secrets to Winning in Small Claims Court.”
On a website touting the tome, Wapner says: “I have presided over thousands of court cases, and over the years I have seen litigants make some colossal mistakes and major blunders. Don’t let that happen to you. This book will take you through the process in an easy to understand, step by step basis so that you will have the best chance to present your side of the story and your evidence in a clear, concise manner.”

The judge says the lessons can apply to both plaintiffs and defendants, and also help to keep people out of Small Claims Court in the future.

At $9.99 I am sure it’s a bargain! And who knows, it might make for some interesting rainy Saturday-afternoon reading.
