Small-town New York justice



The New York Times today starts a three-part series uncovering incompetence and abuse in the nearly 2000 "justice courts" dotting villages and towns throughout the state; qualifications requirements are lower for these positions that have the power to jail defendants than they are for the state's "manicurists and hair stylists." (William Glaberson, "In Tiny Courts of New York, Abuses of Law and Power", New York Times, Sep. 25) (via Childs).
