Judy files suit against her husband, Jayson, because he has stopped giving her Mother's Day cards. Jayson argues that she’s not his mother, so he shouldn’t be held responsible. Judy believes he should be setting a good example for their kids and would like to feel appreciated. Who's right? Who's wrong?

With Summertime Funtime Guest Bailiff Monte Belmonte!

EVIDENCE

SUBMITTED BY JUDY:

SUBMITTED BY JAYSON:

Click here for an article on Mother's Day history. As Jayson says, “Not one word of wife, only a child honoring his/her mother. Plus, origins in Greek methodology and roman history similar to Saint Valentine’s Day, which now like Mother’s Day, should not be celebrated by Jews due to its pagan origins.”

Jen brings the case against her boyfriend Adrian. Adrian has his heart set on buying and displaying an "artisanal axe" in their home. He says it would be a beautiful and practical item to own. Jen says it breaks her rule against having weapons in the home, and opens them up to other beautiful but dangerous items -- what's next, decorative swords??

Who's right? Who's wrong? Only one man can decide.
