    Judicial Campaigns May Put Democracy at Risk, CJP Chair

    American democracy “may well be at risk” as judicial
    campaigns turn into special-interest funded political
    contests in which candidates are pressured into taking
    political stances, Fourth District Court of Appeal
    Presiding Justice Judith McConnell told a community forum.

    McConnell, who in addition to presiding over Div. One is
    the chair of the Commission on Judicial Performance and a
    member of the Statewide Commission for Impartial Courts,
    made the remarks Thursday night at Southwestern Law School.
