Description

Justice Dismissed is an investigation into Bexar County court system that showed how a handful of court judges were "aggressively" dismissing criminal cases for "lack of a speedy trial" to lighten the case load in their courts. The judges were using taxpayer funds to pay defense attorneys to help them do it.
