Pursuant to Section 603(B)(1) of the Philadelphia Bar Association Bylaws, the Commission on Judicial Selection and Retention is requesting your professional opinion concerning the qualifications of those judges seeking retention in November 2013.
The results of this poll will be considered by the Commission along with other pertinent information developed in its investigation. The Commission will report its findings and recommendations to the Philadelphia Bar and to the public.
Again this year, we are also conducting an
interim poll relating to Judges in the Court of Common Pleas in the fourth year of their terms and Municipal Court Judges in the second year of their terms. This interim poll is being conducted strictly for the information of the individual judges and will not
be disseminated to the public.
This survey will remain available for completion until Friday, April 26, 2013, at 5:00 PM.
By responding to this questionnaire with the utmost care and candor, you will be doing your part in our effort to assure an independent, able and effective judiciary for our city. Thank you for your cooperation.

Chancellor 2013 Chair, Judicial Commission
