The Fallout from Luzerne County's Judicial Scandal

Has anybody else noticed that just about every day there is a new story in the paper about somebody challenging a disgraced judge's rulings? It seems it isn't just juvie cases and under insured insurance scams but even property disputes.

The plaintiffs and defendants are coming out of the woodwork and they all want a piece of Luzerne County. I wonder how we are going to pay for all the inevitable judgements. I think before this all comes out in the wash that we are talking about millions of dollars. The county is already deeply in debt (thanks Greg and Todd). What will they do, start selling county owned properties to raise money?

The reality is that I really don't think every ruling that Conahan and Ciavarella made was dirty. The only ones that are coated in slime are the decisions that were influenced by on of the three Bobs or were flat out paid for.
