EUGENE, Ore. - Mr. and Mistress Appliance, the owners of Mr. Appliance in Eugene, sued former tenants on a national court TV show and won.

Rico Kreindel, known as Mr. Appliance from local Television ads, said he and his wife Roxy Rich decided to sue former tenants after winning numerous judgments at the Lane County Courthouse that were never paid up.

“This time, I’m going to get paid," said Roxy Rich, who goes by Mistress Appliance in local TV ads. "I’m going on TV court!”

Rich said the couple won a $2,200 dollar judgment on "Judge Alex," a syndicated courtroom television show that appears locally on KEVU.

“We had photographic evidence," said Rich in her appliance store on Friday. "He had invoices for absolutely everything, so going in we had a great case. I knew we would win.”

The couple said they sued former tenants who lived in one of their rentals on F St. In Springfield for damages that were made to the property. They sued for $3,500. 

The episode featuring the couple was aired on KEVU at 1:30 p.m. Friday.

The used appliance store, Mr. Appliance, is located at 1593 West 2nd Street in Eugene.
