Corrupt Pa. judge seeks dismissal of lawsuit filed on behalf of hundreds of locked-up children

A Pennsylvania judge who pleaded guilty to corruption is seeking dismissal of a lawsuit filed on behalf of hundreds of children who allege he violated their civil rights by taking money in exchange for sending them to private detention centers.

Former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella (shiv-uh-REL'-uh) says he's entitled to judicial immunity for decisions he made from the bench, even if those decisions were corrupt.

Ciavarella and former judge Michael Conahan have pleaded guilty to fraud. Prosecutors say they took more than $2 million in kickbacks from private juvenile detention centers. They each face more than seven years in prison when they are sentenced.

The suit filed by the Philadelphia-based Juvenile Law Center is one of three civil actions faced by Ciavarella, Conahan and others.


Sorry, pal.

But you're not entitled to anything.

The less fortunate children in our society whom you preyed upon are entitled.

Not you.

You are entitled to JAIL time.

You abused your power.

You are a disgrace to society.
