Randy Douthit is a man who had his TV show on Court TV, co-hosted the popular series Divorce Court and served as an adjunct professor of trial advocacy at Rutgers School of Law. He is working with Judge Judy next year on a new show to go along with the rest of her brand new lineup.
He worked as a litigator for over 30 years before moving into television for many years, beginning in the early 90s and retiring from that position in 2007 because he wanted to spend more time with his family while they were growing up. He was then brought back into professional litigation by Justice Judy, where he works until now as she has retired.
Douthit is well known to both laymen and lawyers alike as a highly regarded litigator in appellate litigation. He worked on many cases from state to the U.S. Supreme Court, where his experience was most appreciated, primarily when he represented a client with a lot of money and knew she would win. He worked hard for her and eventually did win but not without losing sleep at night after the case was over for sure.
Working with her wasn’t easy, and he had to remain positive and excellent throughout the process. Her strength of spirit made it difficult for him when she was always sure she would win. He is glad that she eventually did but wishes it could have been sooner than later. He has also worked on many other cases, including his show, which he praised for being “so hard to do” because he got tired of being in the hot lights. Despite this, he loved doing it because it was a great opportunity and helped him improve at what he does; being a lawyer. He is looking forward to working with Judge Judy in the future, along with all of her other shows, including a new one coming out next year.
Randy Douthit is a man to watch in all things criminal, especially in litigation law. He is a family man looking to spend more time with his family now that they are all grown up, and he is retired from television. He is giving lectures at Florida A&M University and the New York Law School, where he teaches trial advocacy.
