Alliance ratings of retention judges released

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.

The Alliance Bar groups have issued ratings for each of the judges seeking retention, offering "yes" or "no" recommendations on each retention candidate. The grids that follow are mostly complete; when updated grids are issued, I'll post them.

(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 is a joke. They are absolutely irrelevant. Now that the ISBA has joined the CBA and CCL in publishing a narrative with their judicial ratings; it is time for them to Brexit. Let the CCL drive that crazy train.

Anon 10/1/16 at 11:48 is absolutely correct. Any bar association that would allow active judicial candidates sit on their JEC (without dire consequences) has no business being in the business of evaluating judges or judicial candidates.
