Following a raid in 2011 by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court took an unprecedented step and appointed Court of Common Pleas Judge Gary S. Glazer the Administrative Judge of Philadelphia's Traffic Court, aiming to reform the Traffic Court permanently and restore public confidence in the adjudication of traffic citations. Judge Glazer has worked with former Pennsylvania Inspector General William G. Chadwick to instill a new culture of ethics and compliance in Traffic Court. On Dec. 3, Judge Glazer, Chadwick and Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Craig R. McCoy discussed these important issues at Countering Corruption: Building A New Culture of Ethics and Compliance in Philadelphia's Traffic Court, sponsored by The David F. and Constance B. Girard-diCarlo Center for Ethics, Integrity and Compliance and the Chief Integrity Officer, City of Philadelphia.
The event took place on Thursday, Dec. 3 from 5:30-6:40 p.m. in the Mayor's Reception Room at Philadelphia City Hall (1401 John F Kennedy Blvd). This program was approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 1 CLE ethics credit.
