A New Jersey federal judge has been asked to order comedian Sunda Croonquist to shut up already with the Jewish mother-in-law jokes. Ruth Zafrin says in a pending suit that she is being falsely and maliciously tagged as a racist in her daughter-in-law's comedy routines. Zafrin's daughter and son-in-law, Shelley and Neil Edelman, also are plaintiffs in the suit, which charges the comedian depicts them in a false light with intent to harm. On Tuesday Judge Mary Cooper denied a motion to dismiss on procedural grounds.
