What Happens at Traffic Court When the Judges Are All Indicted?
300 people showed up to traffic court yesterday to find basically nobody available to hear their cases. (You’ll remember that 9 judges were indicted yesterday for fixing tickets.) Two randos were pulled in form the burbs to judge, but the Inquirer reports that some ticketees had a hard time taking their authority figures seriously. Said one guy, “Do they fix tickets? Who do I talk to?” Courtroom personnel, meanwhile, weren’t amused: “They challenged the right of a reporter to observe or take notes, and threw out one man for laughing.” Someone’s a little touchy.
