Oklahoma: System to rate civil judges across state draws criticism

June 25, 2012

The newly-formed Oklahoma Civil Justice Council is developing a judicial rating system that will rate court of civil appeals and supreme court judges on a scale of zero to 100, on the basis of their support for expanding business liabilities. The Council and its rating system are being backed by the State Chamber of Oklahoma and local Chamber affiliates. Representative Mike Reynolds has called for a full accounting of Council membership.
