    I think it's a BAD idea, to holt the courts from submitting monthly reports, for that relaxes the responsibility of the courts and converst right BACK to the OLD way of doing things.

    I don't believe that the report mentions that the "Money Man," the Briber in this case, and partner of the son of the Supreme Court Justice mentioned by Mr. Hohol in his comment above, has not been sentenced yet although he pleaded guilty a while back. He remains in business and he has been able to settle numerous lawsuits against his actions during this period amounting to several million dollars.

    This would make a good column for "The Legal Intelligencer."

    Power and money are all that counts today. Character, right and wrong, and balls are a distant memory. Thought a guy like Bob Surrick, leading the charge aganst corruption, would wake some people up. Guess not.

    A complete and thorough cover-up by Castille and Company. Does his final report include the fact that the Supreme Court itself was petitioned (King's Bench) by a juvenile advocacy group from Phila. and joined by the State Attorney General begging the Supreme Court to intervene in Luzerne County long before the feds stepped in? Does he discuss the fact that the son of a retired Chief Justice of this very court owned half of the kiddie prison that paid some of the bribes and is at the heart of this issue? Does Castille discuss how the Judicial Conduct Board shelved a detailed complaint about this very matter in order to prosecute the judge (Lokuta) who was suspected of submitting an anonymous but detailed complaint on this matter? Everyone wring your hands at the same time and tell the Chief Justice what a great job he did and how lucky we are that he is in charge. Every one of you deserve being lead by this man as not one amongst you dare question this insanity. And to think we have thousands of brave heroes dying on foreign soil to protect this joke of a system. God bless their souls..........if they only knew.
