Trading Justices (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Trading Justices

Broken mechanics, discharged footmen, and other low fellows, smuggled into the commission of the peace, who subsist by fomenting disputes, granting warrants, and otherwise retailing justice; to the honour of the present times, these nuisances are by no means, so common as formerly.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
