AJP survey says public wants to elect state justices



The American Justice Partnership, the state-oriented tort-reform group, has released a new national survey that indicates strong public support for elective state Supreme Court justices: 75 percent for electing the justices, 21 percent for appointing them. AJP President Dan Pero says: "While the American Justice Partnership Foundation takes no official position on this question, we believe the decision to abolish the peoples' right to select state Supreme Court justices - a right enshrined in many state constitutions - should not be taken lightly."

The full survey, conducted by Ayres, McHenry & Associates, Inc., is available here.
