Judge Joseph Wapner of 'The People's Court' is dead

Ron Matthews | 27 February, 2017, 00:16

In 1993, the show's producers announced that Wapner would not be returning and The People's Court went on hiatus for four years.

Wapner was married to his wife for 70 years and is survived by her, along with two children. On the program, Wapner became a valuable source of education on the legal process through a non-traditional medium. According the Associated Press, Wapner's son David said his father was suffering from breathing problems and was admitted to a hospital last week. Sadly, Judge Wapner has passed away at the age of 97. Wapner eventually became an L.A. County Superior Court judge for 20 years before his time on the show, notesTMZ.

Wapner was first welcomed into our homes in 1981, when The People's Court premiered. He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2009 and returned to "The People's Court" that year to celebrate his 90th birthday. He was eventually relocated to his Los Angeles residence on Friday as his condition worsened, where he remained under hospice care until his death on Sunday morning. In 1999, Koch was replaced by Judge Jerry Sheindlin (husband to "Judge Judy)". Wapner remained a pop culture figure, though, later going on to host an Animal Planet show called Judge Wapner's Animal Court.
