I am trying to think back over the decades of how many civil and criminal cases have been fixed in Luzerne County. It is mind boggling. The Citizen's Voice caught a number of huge breaks here. Judge Ciavarella being found guilty of corruption is on the top of the list. Another break is that the Voice had deep enough pockets to continue on for almost a decade. The scariest part of all of this is the fact that NONE of the safety nets worked. The Appeals Court rubber stamped Ciavarella's original tainted decision regardless of the evidence. The JCB could not be bothered and justice.......real justice never once showed her face until now, ten years later. If Ciavarella was not taken down the Citizens' Voice would have been required to pay this 3.5 million dollar award as adjudicated by one of the most corrupt judges in the history of the United States.

Those of us who didn't have our Trial Judge arrested on corruption charges have simply dried on the vine and blown away. That being said, I am extremely happy that this particular case turned out the way it did. I am proud of the Citizens' Voice for fighting till the end.....no matter what and I am extremely embarrassed that I am a native of the most corrupt county in the most corrupt state in these United.
