The LBA released the results of the 2014 Judicial Evaluation of Federal and Jefferson District Court judges at a press conference Wednesday, June 11 at the Louisville Bar Center.

Attorneys residing and/or practicing in Jefferson County evaluated 30 judges on a series of attributes including legal ability, court management and judicial temperament. The results of the evaluation were collected and tabulated by the independent research firm Thoroughbred Research Group and all responses remain anonymous.

The judicial evaluation, conducted annually since 1979, assesses the performance of sitting judges and magistrates serving Jefferson County state courts and federal courts for the Western District of Kentucky. The evaluation is designed to inform the judges of their strengths and weaknesses, as well as to provide the public with information they can use in evaluating the judges on Election Day. The 2014 General Election will take place on November 4, 2014.

The LBA has been able to conduct the judicial evaluation by way of grant money from the Louisville Bar Foundation.
