My In Box

A few things that have crossed my desk in the past 24 hours or so that I found particularly interesting or provocative:

1. An editorial from Scotland bemoaning the decision to cancel plans for an adaptation of the Red Hook Community Justice Center

2. The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers released a report that details some of the problems that American courts face in delivering justice in misdemeanor cases

3. The Ministry of Justice in the UK releases a "green paper" on community engagement in the criminal justice system that, among other things, calls for an expansion of community justice in England and Wales

4. WNYC's Brian Lehrer features our Harlem Reentry Court on a recent broadcast
