CBA posts ratings for Cook County retention judges

The Chicago Bar Association has published its ratings for Cook County retention candidates on the November 4, 2008 ballot.

That link will take you to the entire 38 page report.

In summary, both Appellate Court justices seeking retention, Michael J. Gallagher and Margaret Stanton McBride, have been rated qualified by the CBA, as have all but four of the 68 Circuit Court judges seeking retention. The four judges singled out by the CBA as "not qualified" for retention are Anthony Lynn Burrell, Evelyn B. Clay, Vanessa A. Hopkins, and Casandra Lewis.

The linked report also contains the CBA's ratings for all other candidates running for judge this November, including those who are running in contested races. I'll post more about the CBA ratings soon.
