Subject: RE: Justice Served with Andy Ostrowski – disciplined lawyer series – lawyers for judicial reform
Date: Mar 2, 2016 3:49 PM
Tune in this evening to hear more from Gene Wrona, who was on the show last year to talk about his disciplinary issue after he came across issues concerning altered court transcripts here in Pennsylvania.
Tonight Gene will tell the story of how he, like last night’s guest, Richard Fine, became incarcerated during his efforts to help a woman who got caught up in the criminal process in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, the home of my practice. Please see Gene’s site at http://pacourtinjustices.com/
http://twigscaferadio.com/ at 6 p.m. eastern time.

Very useful quote in our efforts:
“No class of the community ought to be allowed freer scope in the expression or publication of opinions as to the capacity, impartiality or integrity of judges than members of the bar. They have the best opportunities of observing and forming a correct judgment. They are in constant attendance on the courts. Hundreds of those who are called on to vote never enter a court-house, or if they do, it is only at intervals as jurors, witnesses or parties. To say that an attorney can only act or speak on this subject under liability to be called to account and to be deprived of his profession and livelihood by the very judge or judges whom he may consider it his duty to attack and expose, is a position too monstrous to be entertained for a moment under our present system,”
Justice Sharwood in Ex Parte Steinman and Hensel, 95 Pa 220, 238-39 (1880).
