Well, they aren’t lying when they say you can find anything online!
Attorney Tiffany M. Simmons has launched a new online reality court TV show on Instagram Live. Hood Court, under her moniker @theplugslawyer, goes live four days a week: Sunday, 11 p.m., Monday, 6 p.m., Tuesday, 9 p.m. and Friday, 6 p.m. All times are EST.
Simmons is real-life attorney based in Atlanta who boasts an undefeated record in more than 10 years of cases.
Hood Court is an in-your-face show featuring blunt conversation and provocative arguments as lawyers and jurors utilize expletives to win a case if needed. In each episode viewers can expect to have their legal questions answered live They can actually serve as part of the live jury for docketed cases being heard by Simmons, also known as Judge TIP.
“As a lawyer, I’m known for my results, honesty, integrity, & always being me! I created Hood Court because people need help getting through problems, ” Simmons told Black News. But this isn’t a new idea: “I conceived this show years ago, but with everyone home sheltering-in-place and courts being closed, now is the best time to help the hood mediate and navigate their issues.”
Her more recent cases have included:
(1) Should the Florida pastor who violated a COVID-19 social distancing order be charged with attempted murder?
(2) Should “Tiger King” Joe Exotic receive more jail time for his use of the “n-word”?
(3) Should Bill Cosby or R. Kelly be released from jail due to COVID-19 concerns?
Unlike the typical traditional court TV shows, Hood Court allows members of the jury to argue for or against any case being mediated by Judge TIP.
