Cleveland letting people skip court for Cavs parade


This is one way to celebrate Cleveland’s first title in 52 years.

Cleveland municipal court has decided to give defendants a hall pass for the day and will not issue arrest warrants if defendants miss their court dates.


“Given the historic nature of the Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Championship victory, it is only right and proper that the Cleveland Municipal Court facilitate an opportunity for our employees and those who use the Cleveland Municipal Court’s facilities to join with the rest of Northeast Ohio and the Cavaliers’ nation for the celebratory parade scheduled to take place tomorrow,” Presiding Judge Ronald B. Adrine said.

The parade will run through the center of the city and right past the city Justice Center in downtown Cleveland.

Just hope you don’t get a parking ticket at the parade because I don’t think they’ll let you off twice.
