Judge Reinhold heard that Judge Judy made $25 million in 2005 so wanted to make his own courtroom TV series. He lost weight for the role and was upset when he had to wear the flowing gown a judge usually wears, so he asked his producer Jan Eagleman for something that showed his svelte frame. He also was upset that the show's title — Judge Reinhold – was a cheap ploy to get audiences to watch so he wanted Jan to change the show back to Mr. Reinhold’s Courtroom. It eventually landed on Mock Trial with J. Reinhold. For the pilot episode, the Bluth family went on trial and Mr. Reinhold called mistrial after Franklin revealed that Wayne Jarvis threatened Michael. ("Fakin' It")

After informing him that wiping all of the Bluth Company computers is illegal, George calls Michael "Judge Reinhold". ("Family Ties")
