Move over Judge Judy, now there’s an Internet

Larissa Anderson Jun 6, 2012

Got a legal problem? Is legal help too expensive? Don’t worry. Internet! Judgeme.com is described by its founder as a “small claims court for the Internet that, according to Computerworld offers “legally binding arbitration services with a particular eye on settling the conflicts that arise over freelance development and Web design.” Everything happens over email, from opening statements to final decision. Again, from Computerworld: “Disputes that have been resolved by the service include parents of a quickly divorced couple disputing the payment of the wedding, an issue between a tutor and one of his students and a dispute between a freelance consultant and a client.”
