Posner on election of judges



"[M]ost state judges are elected, and for a variety of reasons this is an unsatisfactory method of judicial appointment, used nowhere else, as far as I know, in the world," he writes. Judge Posner's blog partner Gary Becker, meanwhile, comments on the lately publicized plan by law profs Roger Cramton (Cornell) and Paul Carrington (Duke) to eliminate life tenure for Supreme Court justices, on which see also PowerLine.
