New program for evaluating Virginia judges up for reappointment

The Washington Post reports here on a new program for evaluating Virginia judges who are up for reappointment. The program calls for evaluations by lawyers, jurors, and retired judges. It was formulated by a task force headed by Justice Keenan.

The article also says that since the Republicans assumed the majority in 2000, other changes they have implemented include the establishment of "local citizen commissions to screen nominees for circuit and district court judgeships."
