The Alliance grids are (mostly) finished -- Alliance ratings in countywide judicial races

Herewith the grids so far in the countywide judicial races. Clicking on any image may increase its size or sharpen its focus, depending on the device on which you are reading this.

The Alliance of Bar Associations for Judicial Screening is comprised of the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Chicago Area (AABA), Black Women 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.

You'll note some organizations have rated some candidates "NE." That is not a negative evaluation. It is, rather, an indication that the particular bar association was unable to participate in the evaluation of that candidate, through no fault of that candidate.

As previously mentioned, Alliance members who have not completed their evaluations are working hard to do, and once new grids are released, I will have them here on FWIW.
