Judicial Elections

Listen
AIR DATE: October 19, 2010

For the third time in forty years, Nevada citizens will have to decide whether they want to keep electing judges. Critics say elections require judges to solicit donations and engage in unseemly criticism of each other. The voters tend to agree and so the proposition supported by "Nevadans for Quality Judges" is struggling to pass in November. We look at both sides of the question about whether direct election or the Missouri System of retention elections for judges is better.

GUESTS
Barbara Buckley, Speaker, Nevada Assembly
Knight Allen, citizen activist and longtime opponent of changing judicial elections

COMMENTS:
Who is this interviewer who has replaced Dave Berns? He seems far more interested in arguing than having a discussion with Justice O'Connor.
