Merit selection of judges

    Pennsylvania is one of a handful of states in which judges are elected. Activists have been advocating for a switch to merit selection for some time, and recently several state legislators have proposed amending the constitution to change the system. We discuss judicial election reform with LYNN MARKS of Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts and JIM MUNDY, partner in the Philadelphia firm of Raynes, McCarty, Binder, Ross & Mundy and a past president of the Philadelphia and Pennsylvania trial lawyers associations.
