|2014 Judicial Performance Review results|
Results from The Iowa State Bar Association’s biennial survey of judges standing for retention in this year’s general election were tabulated and are now available to the public.
The ISBA has conducted the biennial performance review since 1962 when Iowa adopted its merit system for selecting judges. The review is designed to give voters information on which to base their decisions about keeping a judge in office. The ISBA encourages members to share the results with their friends, family, clients and communities.
