The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC) issued a statement saying the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania is grateful for the work of Berks County Senior Judge Arthur E. Grim as special master of the fund to compensate victims of juvenile offenders associated with the “travesty of justice effectuated by two corrupt Luzerne County judges.”

“Judge Grim, through his efforts as special master of the Special Juvenile Victim Compensation Fund, as well as his work as special master in reviewing all of the juvenile cases in the Luzerne County scandal, is held in the highest regard by the Supreme Court,” Chief Justice of Pennsylvania Ronald D. Castille said in the statement.
