BBA Letter to Governor's Council on the Judicial Appointment Process
Dear Governor's Council:
The Boston Bar Association (the "BBA") respectfully requests your careful consideration of a judicial candidate's extensive and distinguished record as a lawyer, as well as his other professional accomplishments, before voting on any judicial appointment. The BBA, a voluntary, non-partisan organization of more than 10,000 members, does not endorse judicial candidates. This letter does not constitute an endorsement of any judicial nominee. We write instead to address three issues that are pertinent to judicial nominations in general.
First, we have great confidence in the process that precedes your examination of judicial candidates. Notably, the ability of our system to produce judges of the highest caliber depends on the continued willingness of talented lawyers, with experience in serving their communities to step forward and submit themselves to a searching assessment of their fitness for judicial service. As members of the Governor's Council, each of you is called upon to give thoughtful consideration to the qualifications of every judicial nominee who comes before you at the ultimate stage in this process.
