The People's Court
This is Your Life


We were there when the first gavel dropped.

For more than two decades, The People’s Court has been meting out justice, TV-style.  Debuting in 1981, the reality-based court show introduced a whole new genre of programming that gave rise to numerous imitators, but no equals.  Retired Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joseph A. Wapner presided over the initial half-hour show, which ran five days a week for 12 seasons under the Ralph Edwards/Stu Billett Productions banner. 



After a four-year hiatus, The Peopleís Court returned to television in 1997 as an hour series. Since 2000, the nationally syndicated show has had former Miami Circuit Court Judge Marilyn Milian on the bench. Fluent in Spanish, Judge Milian brings a multicultural dimension to the popular show.
