There is not a verifiable return litigant on the "Judge Mathis" show, as of October 2015, but previous litigants can submit their case on JudgeMathisTV.com. Each case is selected by the producers on a case-by-case basis regardless of a litigant's previous appearance on the "Judge Mathis" show; therefore, it is possible to be on the show more than once. The "Judge Mathis" show has aired more than 5,000 original episodes since 1999.
Judge Greg Mathis is a retired Michigan district court judge and the presiding judge on the show that bears his name. On the show, Mathis hears small claims tort cases. "Judge Mathis" is the second-longest running court series, second only to "Judge Judy."
