The past couple of months have been a whirlwind for Cheri Lindsey.

After tearfully closing the doors to her 74-year-old Wareham restaurant, Lindsey (mistakenly listed as Cheryl in the screenshot above) was pushed once again into the spotlight this weekend when we were all reminded about the time she was featured on one of America's most popular television shows.

The Judge Judy Facebook page shared her throwback case.

Back in October 2016, Lindsey was a defendant on Judge Judy.  She was being sued by a Plymouth man named John Yanuskiewicz, a retired mail carrier who claimed his team was shorted roughly $100 after they won the Lindsey's Golf Open charity event.

The event was held to raise money for a $5,000 scholarship that would be awarded to a college student getting into the field of helping people with special needs. Yanuskiewicz claimed that when he won the tournament the previous year the payout was $400 for his team. In the May 2016 tournament, however, the plaintiff said that he won the tournament and one portion of the skins game. He says he should have won more money.

Judge Judy was definitely not sympathetic to Yanuskiewicz, and made that plainly clear. She felt he was missing the entire point of the charity event.

The internet, being what it is, didn't hold back on the new Facebook post, with some commenters claiming the plaintiff reminded them of Captain Kangaroo.  A kinder, gentler commenter shared that Lindsey looked like an older version of Mary Swanson, a character played by Jim Carey's ex-wife Lauren Holly in the movie Dumb and Dumber.

We have to say, after mentioning that, it is hard not to see the resemblance.

In other Lindsey's news, the former executive chef of the now-closed restaurant has landed on his feet. David Veronneau will run the show at Charred Oak Tavern in Middleboro.
