Description

Philadelphia Daily News staff decends en masse on the city's 41 common pleas courts for a single day to provide a snapshot of the court system; judges were late or worked short days, defendants and sometimes victims failed to show up, lawyers were scheduled in two court rooms at once and the whole system was overburdened to the point of breakdown, March 13, 1990.
