We interview the candidates, and review their answers to our questionnaire. We look at examples of the candidates’ writing, and get the input of lawyers who know their work.’s ratings are non-partisan, and independent. We care only whether the particular candidates who are running this year will be competent, fair and trustworthy judges. So we focus on each candidate’s integrity, knowledge, experience, diligence, and community understanding, and on every candidate’s ability to be impartial, even-tempered and respectful to the people who must come to court.
