What's being said

  • Shame on Lackawanna County

    Judge Corbett obviously is not taking AOPC report seriously. Ms. Ross is now located next to the judges' offices. Doesn't that smell of conflict?

  • Lackawanna Count is a Joke

    Didn't I read that AOPC report was critical of the GAL program? 50 recommendation and concerns.
