Alliance of Bar Associations releases subcircuit judicial candidate evaluations

Actually, the Alliance released all of its candidate ratings today, but I think it will be easier to follow if I break these into four pieces (subcircuit, countywide Circuit Court, Appellate Court, and Supreme Court).

The Alliance of Bar Associations for Judicial Screening is comprised of the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Chicago Area (AABA), Black Women’s Lawyers Association of Greater Chicago (BWLA), Chicago Council of Lawyers (CCL), Cook County Bar Association (CCBA), Decalogue Society of Lawyers (DSL), Hellenic Bar Association (HBA), Hispanic Lawyers Association of Illinois (HLAI), Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA), Lesbian and Gay Bar Association of Chicago (LAGBAC), Puerto Rican Bar Association of Illinois (PRBA), and Women’s Bar Association of Illinois (WBAI), working collaboratively to improve the process of screening judicial candidates in Cook County, Illinois.

The foregoing list of abbreviations and this key will explain the symbols used in the Alliance "grids":
