ELECT NONLAWYER JUDGES MINN. 221NW2nd 562 Scarrella Assoc. Justice

EeKeep our Courts Fair
Keep Our Courts Fair ELECT NON LAWYER JUDGES

The time to act is now. Minnesota can take am immediate step to prevent the politicization of judicial elections. Merit selection, performance evaluation and retention elections will keep our judicial system focused on making fair and impartial decisions.

This session, help us encourage the Legislature to submit a constitutional amendment to Minnesota voters to change the process for selecting and retaining judges. This will increase the accountability of our judicial system while protecting its impartiality, as well as respecting the rights of citizens to make the final retention decision. The time to act is now.

Review the Message

A sample letter appears below, but a message written in your own words will be the most effective.









Thank for contacting your legislator on the impartial courts project. Your voice has helped put pressure on legislators to safeguard our historically fair and impartial courts from special interest influence by creating a "merit selection" and "retention election process."

Your message was sent to:

Senator Richard J. Cohen
Representative Erin Murphy

Judicial elections across the country are experiencing expensive partisan campaigns even in so called nonpartisan states like Minnesota. As a result of a recent Supreme Court case, Minnesota's historically fair and impartial courts could soon be up for sale because of large sums of special interest money in judicial campaigns.

We can prevent this from happening in our state - now is the time to preserve the judicial impartiality Minnesotans expect from their judges. I urge you to support a constitutional amendment to change the process for selecting and retaining judges, increasing the accountability of our judicial system while protecting its impartiality and the rights of citizens to make the final retention decision informed by unbiased evaluation of each judges performance.
