Storyline

On the heels of the successful "Divorce Court," "Superior Court" was among a wave of reality-based courtroom dramas released in the late 1980s. Both criminal and civil procedings were presented, with most cases involving shock value rather than routine cases. Examples of cases included a defendant tried for murdering another man, but the defendant claimed he saw the actual perpetrator in a dream; and a man who sued a financial institution after a banker swindled him out of $10 million.

A Great Court Show
3 June 2002 | by jprice-4See all my reviews

Before Judge Judy, Before Judge Joe Brown, There's "Superior Court". From Ralph Edwards/Stu Billet productions, the makers of "The People's Court" a court show with cases based on real life cases using actors and changing their names to protect in innocent.

I used to watch the show on USA Network during the early 1990s and I enjoy it and I also remember Raymond St. Jacques' character on "Superior Court" Judge Clayton C. Thomas.

I got 2 episodes recorded on tape and I enjoy it.

I give it 10 out of 10.
