Subject: Courts
Source: New York Times
Date: 9/25 - 9/27



This series described the long record of injustices in New York's town and village courts that dates from the Colonial era. These courts are not financed by the state; because all their funding comes from towns and villages, they are starved for resources. The lack of state supervision paved the way for racism, favoritism and sexism to thrive in the courts.
