On the ABA ratings of federal judge nominees

This editorial from the Hartford Courant says that it is unfair that Judge Bryant has no way to confront the people who said whatever bad things were said about her to the people at the ABA who rated her unqualified for the federal judgeship in Connecticut to which she has been renominated by President Bush.

The editorial says in part:

"This is an injustice to Judge Bryant and to anyone who may appear before her. If her colleagues have serious concerns about her competence, they owe it to clients and the rest of the legal fraternity to come forward. Judge Bryant deserves the chance to confront her critics and answer their allegations."
