Retired Bucks County Judge Isaac S. “Zeke” Garb, who presided over the controversial Point Pleasant pumping station case that garnered national attention and the William Bradfield "Main Line Murders" case, died Monday after a brief illness.
Judge Garb, 83, of Buckingham, was still handling settlement conferences, bail hearings and bench warrants until 2 ½ weeks before he died, although state law forced him to retire as a full-time judge at age 70.
“He had a great legal mind,” county Court Administrator Doug Praul said Wednesday. “There is no one I have ever heard of who compared to him, or will again.

State and local police have tracked down 27 drug distributors and dealers selling about $10 million worth of crystal methamphetamine in the Philadelphia area and eastern Pennsylvania, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.
"Operation Blowout" identified a network of distributors and dealers responsible for transporting bulk quantities of meth into Reading and Philadelphia -- as much as a pound of drugs every two weeks,” state Attorney General Linda Kelly said at a morning press conference. “The meth was then repackaged into smaller quantities and resold by various associates in an area stretching from Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley all the way to Lycoming and Tioga counties, near the New York State border in north-central Pennsylvania.”
Much of the drugs came from Mexico, officials said, and the ongoing investigation is seeking a second source.
Pennsbury School District’s plan to rebalance its three voting regions is preferable to a civic group’s proposal to form nine regions, a Bucks County judge has ruled.
The administration’s and school board’s plan “is free from any taint of arbitrariness or discrimination,” Judge Susan Devlin Scott wrote in her decision, dated Nov. 21. The district received the order Tuesday.
The district’s plan “is less disruptive to the overall representational scheme because it moves just three precincts out of the 35 precincts … to new regions,” Scott ruled. Under the civic group’s plan, they admitted that “at least three of the nine current Board members would be unseated.”
