Judges aren't used to being judged. But soon - they might be judged... by lawyers. If a proposal is adopted by the Virginia General Assembly and Supreme Court... ATTORNEYS could have a say in whether judges KEEP their jobs.
The proposal - drafted by a 27-member task force - would have lawyers fill out questionnaires on judges' courtesy, fairness and efficiency among other factors. The judges would get the feedback until the last year of their terms - when legislators would ALSO get the evaluations... before considering whether a judge should be reappointed.
