Mablean Ephriam left "Divorce Court" in March 2006 at the end of its seventh season. The judge had hosted the FOX-produced court show since its revival in 1999.
Contract disputes led to Ephriam's departure from the program and her replacement by Lynn Toler, who still presides over "Divorce Court" as of November 2015. Ephriam practiced as a private attorney and a prosecutor in Los Angeles before starting her career as a television judge on "Divorce Court."
She returned to syndicated television in 2014 with another court show, "Justice with Judge Mablean," which airs on ABC affiliates and Justice Central as of 2015.
