Philadelphia Traffic Court judge flunks driving laws test

    Who would have thought winning the election would be the easy part?

    KYW reports newly elected Traffic Court Judge Christine Solomon can’t hear cases yet because she didn’t pass the driving laws test all judges in that court are required to take.

    Solomon will have another chance to pass the test later this month, according to Judge Gary Glazer.
    Glazer’s had a couple court headaches since the state Supreme Court appointed him to the head of the court last month amid a ticket-fixing investigation. Just before the holidays, Judge Willie Singletary was relieved of his duties for allegedly showing a lewd photo of himself to a female court employee.
