Wednesday, April 5, 2017

The Maine State Bar Association Judicial Evaluation Committee sends out surveys to all practicing lawyers in Maine to evaluate trial court judges in the second year of every judge's first term on the bench and the sixth year of every judge's term thereafter. The second-year evaluations are used to provide feedback to the judges. The sixth-year evaluations are used to make recommendations to the Board of Governors on whether the Association should support or oppose renomination of the judge.

This year, we are conducting evaluations in April and May. The April evaluations include sixth-year evaluations for Judge Gregory A. Campbell, Justice G. Arthur Brennan, and Justice John H. O'Neil, Jr. An email with a link to a confidential survey was distributed April 3. More information about the judicial evaluation process and links to paper evaluations are available here. The survey closes April 28.
