Moreover, Mathis holds a record of second longest serving court show arbitrator ever, just behind Judith Sheindlin of the court show Judge Judy.

It is the fourth longest running courtroom series behind Divorce Court,

 The People’s Court, and Judge Judy, respectively. Though both Divorce Court and The People’s Court have suffered cancellation(s) and shifting arbitrators whereas Judge Mathis has not.
