Small town "justice"

The New York Times has a fascinating series of articles up exploring the system of Town and Village Justice Courts in New York. You can read the whole thing here. In my hometown, the village Justice also ran the "Chuck Wagon" (a converted Winnebago serving hamburgers and hotdogs) at the County Fair.

UPDATE: Nicole at Sui Generis links to the same article and has her own Town Court war stories here.

UPDATE 2: Part two of the series is up here.

UPDATE 3: And Part three is here.
