Judge Joseph Wapner has passed away. He was admitted to a publicly unnamed medical establishment, before being transferred to the care of a hospice worker at his West Los Angeles residence. 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 is a man of the greatest honor and integrity that anybody has ever met, and he certainly passed that down to both of us", said David Miron-Wapner, another of the late judge's two sons. "It was very important to me". Former lawyer and mayor of New York, Ed Koch, replaced Wapner for two seasons and was later succeeded by Judge Jerry Sheindlin (Judge Judy Sheindlin's husband). No cause of death has been given, but TMZ says that he was hospitalized last week with "breathing problems" and his condition had worsened since then. Wapner ruled in favor of Letterman, granting him $24.95.
