MANY A PETITIONER ASKS:
“JUDGE JOHN HODGMAN, what do you look for when you choose which disputes you will settle in a BINDING, QUASI-LEGAL MANNER ON A PODCAST?”
- The dispute should exist in the real world; it should not be hypothetical. We do welcome occasional philosophical disputes as they interest the Judge.
- The court does not merely seek to tell you that you are WRONG. It also wishes to dispense JUSTICE, so please note whether you desire the Judge to issue an INJUNCTION, an ORDER, or award DAMAGES.
- Trials are conducted via phone call, recorded in studios. Each disputant will be booked at a local recording studio for the trial and should plan to set aside about an hour for this.
Please note! Cases are pre-screened and scheduled to record. Our recordings typically take place on Wednesday afternoons between 3:30 and 6pm Eastern Time, though we do occasionally schedule them on other days of the week. We do not record on weekends.
