St. Joseph Bar evaluates judges

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The St. Joseph County Bar Association has released the results of its 2009 survey evaluating Superior Court judges. This is the second time the bar association has completed and published this survey.

Surveys were e-mailed in August to bar association members to evaluate the eight judges: Judges Roland Chamblee Jr.; David Chapleau; J. Jerome Frese; Jenny Pitts Manier; John Marnocha; Jane Woodward Miller; Margot F. Reagan; and Michael Scopelitis. Superior judges in St. Joseph County face retention instead of elections.

Members assigned scores of 1 through 5 to the judges on questions involving legal ability, integrity and impartiality, professionalism and temperament, and administrative capability. The results of the survey are available on the SJCBA's Web site under News & Events.

  5. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation."
