Alliance releases retention grids -- so far

Not all the Alliance bar groups have yet spoken (as you will see) but some early votes are already being cast in the November election so the Alliance of Bar Associations for Judicial Screening has released its 'grids' showing the retention recommendations received so far.

Herewith the grids as of this morning (click on the images to clarify or enlarge):

Updated grids will be released as additional recommendations are received.

Recommendations and ratings provided by Alliance members are advisory only and do not constitute an endorsement of any candidacy.

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

Great! More useless grids that don't really tell the sheeple anything.

The grids are nice, but I wish there was something easier to follow. I would prefer just a single numerical rating for each candidate in a race or a single endorsement for one candidate over another. The grids are not easy to follow for one race, let alone many.

How about the Alliance issuing one rating per candidate....
