Missouri Bar seeks public comments about state's judges

Tuesday, March 2, 2010 | 9:31 a.m. CST

JEFFERSON CITY — Missourians now have a chance to rate their judges.

The Missouri Bar said it's taking public comments on the performance of the 62 judges who will be up for retention votes this fall. The comment period will run through April 15.

The comment forms apply only to judges appointed under the nonpartisan court plan, not to judges chosen in partisan elections.

The public comments will be shared with special judicial performance evaluation committees, which also are surveying lawyers, jurors and judges.

The Bar has created a Web site where comments can be entered.
