Judge Hodgman and Bailiff Jesse are rarin' to clear out the docket & follow up with the brothers from Episode 165, Wake Me Up Before You Go, Bro! We'll return with all-new trials next week.
You can still submit cases to be heard at the Live Judge John Hodgman at SF Sketchfest on Friday, February 6th (the show is sold out, but you'll get in if we select your case!).
If you and another party
- reside in the SF Bay area, or will be able to attend the show on February 6
- have a legitimate beef, large or small (that fits our usual requirements)
Declan brings the case against his older brother Taran. Taran is a heavy sleeper and often relies on Declan to wake him up in the mornings. Declan thinks he should get used to a real alarm clock, since they won't be living together forever. Who's right? Who's wrong? Only one man can decide.

Ben brings the case against his wife Jenna. They wed and moved in together a few years ago, and have yet to come to an agreement on their morning routine. Jenna isn't really an early-riser, and prefers to get as much sleep as she can before getting out of bed. Ben believes in a schedule that allows them plenty of time to wake up and prepare for the day. How should they model their mornings? Only one man can decide.
