O'Connor, Posner Weigh In on Judicial Selection

As typically happens as election season approaches, the debate on how to select judges is getting increased attention. 

Former Justice Sandra Day O'Connor mades a compelling case for merit-based selection of judges in a New York Times column published Friday, "Take Justice Off the Ballot." 

Eric Posner (son of Judge Richard Posner), who advocates electing judges, recently wrote for Newsweek:  "The Case for Electing Judges in Missouri."
