Missouri Bar Recommends Voters Oust County Judge

The Missouri Bar’s judicial-review committee has released evaluations of the 51 judges standing for retention in November, recommending against the retention of Judge Dale W. Hood. Judge Hood also received a “not be retained” recommendation in 2008 but was retained by 54 percent of the vote. Only two judges have been removed by voters since the Non-Partisan Court Plan was established in 1940.
