Judges give out payments to lawyers who manage properties controlled by the court.
The judges gave out $1.4 million in 43 cases that had 51 payments (some cases have multiple payments).
One group of politically connected people got 8 payments, worth $762,000.
This money came from only four cases (Judges selected group members to work on the most lucrative cases.)
Six of the payments, worth $599,892, came from just one judge. That judge gave out $760,000 in total.
- Your data shows each fee payment, whether it went to the group and which judge gave it.
- Use 6 steps or less. How many do you need?
