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.
