Termination of Inactive Citations Issued on or before December 31, 1992; Administrative Doc. No. 01 of 2002

[32 Pa.B. 5509]


   And Now, this 23rd day of October, 2002, upon compliance with the Procedure for Terminating Inactive Traffic Court Citations pursuant to Pa.R.J.A. No. 1901, and as provided in Administrative Docket No. 1 of 2001, issued by the Traffic Court on March 13, 2001, the Traffic Court, having attempted to identify the violators in citations issued on or before December 31, 1992, without success, and/or having determined that these citations have not resulted in a plea, adjudication or judgment against the violators, and further that there has been no activity on these citations for a period of five years or more, and the citations are thus both legally and practically unenforceable, and the City of Philadelphia and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania having been informed of the intent to terminate these cases, and no objections having been received;

   Now, Therefore, It Is Hereby Ordered, Adjudged and Decreed that all Traffic Court citations issued prior to December 31, 1992, for which there has been no plea or adjudication, and for which there has been a lack of activity for a period of five (5) years or more, shall be terminated 60 days after the issuance of this Order.

   The full list of citations to be terminated shall be available for public inspection at the Philadelphia Traffic Court, 800 Spring Garden Street, Philadelphia, PA 19130, during the Traffic Court's normal business hours. It Is Further Provided that on or before the termination date, any interested party may petition the Court and show cause why any citation on the termination list should not be removed from that list.

   This Administrative Order is issued in accordance with the May 8, 1996 Order of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, Eastern District, No. 168 Judicial Administration, Docket No. 1, Administrative Docket No. 1 of 2001, Pa.R.J.A. No. 1901, and Pa.R.C.P. 239. As required by Pa.R.C.P. 239, the original Order shall be filed with the Prothonotary in a docket maintained for Administrative Orders issued by the Administrative Judge of the Philadelphia Traffic Court, and copies shall be submitted to the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts, the Legislative Reference Bureau, and the Minor Judiciary Committee. Copies of the Order shall also be submitted to American Lawyer Media, The Legal Intelligencer, Jenkins Memorial Law Library and the Law Library for the First Judicial District of Pennsylvania.
