Bar association says no to delegate's appeal for input on new judge

In a strange twist, a Peninsula-area delegate has concluded that since he has the votes to bounce a sitting circuit court judge, he wanted the views of the local bar as to whom he should propose as the successor, but the bar association is refusing to cooperate, as reported here ("Gear seeks input on replacing Andrews," 2/20/04) in the Daily Press.

I never heard of a bar association refusing to vote on anything, and I also thought that the local bar associations' views were carrying less weight these days.
