Alliance 'fills in the blanks' on retention grids

The Alliance Bar groups have issued ratings for each of the judges seeking retention, offering "yes" or "no" recommendations on each retention candidate. When I posted these grids initially, over the weekend, there were still several 'holes' in the grid; they are now almost entirely complete.

(Depending on the device on which you're viewing this post, clicking on the images below will enlarge them, or sharpen their focus.)

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.

Does anyone, besides the CCL or CBA include discussion for the basis of their decisions? The smattering of "Nos" for many retention judges are hard to evaluate without further explanation.
