On evaluating judges

This article that the American Bar Association has now out new guidelines for evaluating state court judges, which guidelines "aimed at educating those who re-elect or reappoint judges. The guidelines ask that judges be judged by objective criteria, including a judge's willingness to make impartial, difficult and unpopular decisions based on law and fact."

The article also describes the new Virginia program for evaluating judges up for reappointment.
