Judge Joseph Wapner of The People’s Court fame has died. He was 97.
If you are of a certain age, you watched The People’s Court, or were at least familiar.
Before becoming a TV judge, Wapner served as an L.A. County Superior Court judge for 20 years.
He was hospitalized last week with breathing problems and his condition worsened, to the point he was taken to his West L.A. home Friday under hospice care. He died Sunday morning.
Judge Wapner was married to wife Mickey for 70 years. He had 3 kids.
Rest in peace.
