    Excellent article. Sounds like another "Operation Greylord" scandal in Chicago years ago that exposed corrupt lawyers and judges. Many were disbarred, some imprisoned.

  • La Tasha Williams

    I believe that court proceedings in traffic court, MC and CP should be video and audio-taped. The public would be outraged to know what truly goes on in these rooms. Stenography does not capture the essence of the inappropriateness I have bore witness to. And even then, judges have been known to have them strike certain parts of the record. You all remember the "vile" incident. Shameful!
