Justice for the juvies

WILKES-BARRE – The Juvenile Law Center in Philadelphia announced it will file a renewed petition with the state Supreme Court that asks the justices to review the cases of every child who was deemed delinquent and placed in detention by Judge Mark Ciavarella from 2003 to 2008.

The PA Supreme Court denied their last request for relief for kids that were denied counsel and railroaded through the system. Civil rights attorney Barry Dyller may file a class action suit on behalf of the kids and Joe Lach, a Kingston attorney, said he is also considering a similar suit.

Some other private firms are soliciting business even setting up a questionnaire on the company website and running TV ads. The top dog in the 'The People's Law Firm' has been a contributer to various local and federal Democratic politicians and has been a delegate to the national conventions. The state website has chronological limits but these 2 contributions are curious;

8/31/2001 $300.00 to LOKUTA, ANN H COM TO KEEP JUDGE and

10/16/2003 $300.00 CONAHAN, MICHAEL COM TO RETAIN

I'm madder than Hell that all the pukey liberal/commies are attacking a fine young man like Mr. Ciavarella. When it all comes down to it all this great jurist did was to put away punk kids in the pen where they belong!!! These punks spend their days hanging out at the mini marts and chasing girls!! In my day we had punks like today's too; but most of them ended up on Omaha Beach or Iwo Jima--at least there they were useful. SO, as far as Mr. Ciavarella and Mr. Conahan are concerned, we shouldn't be attacking them, we should pin a medal on these two sainted souls for ridding our neighborhoods of stupid, dimwit, commie young thugs!!! SInce when is building more prisons a bad thing??? I knew once Obama took charge we were going to Hell in a handbasket, I just didn't think it would be so fast!!! To Hell with the Commie who posts this site; to hell with all of its subversive readers, and to Hell with all the lying liberals who have nothing more to do with their time than to destroy the reputations of two fine young judges!!! I hate you all!!!!!!!

Since Powell was pushing for the cargo airport, it leads me to wonder what type of sweet, back room deals might be going on there?

It is rumored that Powell was wearing a wire...well more than a rumor but for now settle on that. The question remains- How long did he wear the wire and in who's company was he wearing it. Was it limited to the judges??

Big Daddy's right. He did wear a wire. No honor amongst thieves! I was disappointed that this all took so long to break - but I'm hoping the Feds did an extensive job and plan to finish this root canal.

Mean old man is your brain really that soft that you believe the in the virtues of these two thug judges? They too are democrat liberals just like the rest of the Luzerne County trash. Maybe its time for you to shove the needle in?

I just got in from fixing some fences and I saw the pukey comment from the dimwit whose afraid to post his real name (typical Commie behavior).
Mr. Ciavarella and Mr. Conahan are far from being liberals! When was the last time a liberal ever built a prison? I've just shot down your argument as quickly as the crow my wife Thelma Jean sniped earlier today (good soup tonight, for sure).
As far as shoving needles in, I guess you are probably an expert at that since you are a no good thug drug addict who spends his time at the mini mart chasing girls and mooching off of God fearing hard working customers for your next fix.
It is because of fine young men like Mr. Chiavarella and Conahan that punks like you were locked up in the first place, so I understand why you're ticked off about my comments. But of course, the liberals kicked out the only two good jurists we had and now I am going to have to put up with the likes of you and your loser friends everytime I go to the mini mart. OF course, I'll be funding your disability check too. To hell with anonymous posters and to Hell with liberals!!! God Bless Judges Conahan and Ciavarella. ANd by the way; let Ann Lokuta rot in Hell too!!!!!! I hate you all!!!!!
