Philadelphia Bar Association Takes Action in Support of Merit Selection

The Philadelphia Bar Association has championed the cause of merit selection of judges for more than fifty years. As early as next week, members of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives may vote on House Bill 111, which will introduce merit selection of appellate court judges. Chancellor Mary Platt wrote a personal letter to each member of the House of Representatives and the Senate from Southeastern Pennsylvania urging them to vote in favor of HB 111.
