The Judiciary Committee of the Montgomery Bar Association is
charged with interviewing and rating candidates for the position of
judge on the Court of Common Pleas. The Judiciary Committee is
composed of 30 lawyers of diverse backgrounds, ages, practices and
geographic areas of Montgomery County with a combined legal
practice exceeding 700 years.
Each candidate is evaluated individually and not as compared
to other candidates. The purpose of the ratings is to educate the
public as to how the candidates' peers view them as possibly
becoming judges, and to assist the electorate in their evaluation of
judicial candidates on Election Day.
The Committee is charged to rate a candidate recommended,
highly recommended or not recommended. The recommendation
awarded to the candidate does not speak to the candidate's ability
as a practicing attorney at law.
The rating criteria which are considered are the candidates':
A. Integrity;
B. Good moral character;
C. Industry;
D. Good health;
E. Legal ability;
F. Bench trial, jury trial or evidentiary hearing experience;
G. Judicial temperament (patience, courtesy, compassion,
impartiality, humility, even temper, sense of fairness).
Each candidate submits to the Committee a biographical summary
of his or her legal experience and background. These submissions
are carefully reviewed and considered. The Committee also
conducts reviews and discussions with persons the candidates
advise are familiar with their qualifications. The Bar considers this
procedure a public service.
