Utah Judicial Performance Evaluations to be Released

The Utah Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission has published its evaluation reports and recommendations online.  The Commission was created by statute in 2008 and undertook midterm evaluations in 2010 that were only for self-improvement purposes.  All the judges up for retention this year received positive recommendations.  Evaluation information includes attorney, court employee, and juror ratings, in addition to ratings given by volunteer courtroom observers who work with the Commission.
