The former Los Angeles Supreme Court judge turned People’s Court judge, Joseph Wapner has died at the age of 97.

Judge Wapner went to the hospital with breathing issues earlier in the week and was sent home with hospice care.

Arguably one of the most widely recognized judges on TV or otherwise, Judge Wapner paved the way for other justice based TV shows like Judge Judy, Judge Mathis, Divorce Court, etc. and The People’s Court still airs with Judge Marilyn Milian at the bench.
