Price of justice
To Intell Editors:
Did I read that right? According to the March 23 editorial, it cost Lancaster County taxpayers $3,498 to bring visiting Justice Charles B. Smith here from Chester County to hear the case of our own illustrious city District Judge Kelly S. Ballentine, who had already pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor offense for fixing three of her own parking tickets worth $269.59?
Where'd he visit from Chester County, Oregon?
(Editors' note: The $3,498 includes travel and Judge Smith's per diem rate.)
