Judging the Judges

Recently, someone asked the Missouri League of Women Voters, on their website, “Where can I find information about judges?” That’s a good question.  After all, we’ll be voting to retain them or not. Here is a link to the Missouri Bar Association’s evaluations of judges, based on criteria like “Being fair and impartial toward each side of the case,” “Writing opinions that are clear,” “Treating parties equally,” etc. http://www.showmecourts.org. For Boone County, you’ll have to go to the section on “Outstate Missouri.”  Boone County is in the Western District.  You can also find out more information about the process of selecting and evaluating judges here: http://bit.ly/PDcvzn.
