Who’s the favorite Supreme Court justice of judges?

August 17th, 2017|

A biopic on Ruth Bader Ginsburg starring Felicity Jones (Rogue One, The Theory of Everything) and titled “On the Basis of Sex” is set to begin filming this fall and hit the screens in the near future. Judging from this month’s survey results, quite a few judges will eagerly await the film’s release.

Judges are feeling less respected

February 16th, 2017|

The survey results are in, and we’re sad to report that nearly two-thirds of judges feel that their standing with the public has deteriorated.

Earlier this month our Question of the Month debuted by asking NJC alumni if they felt the public’s esteem for judges had risen, declined, or stayed the same in the past 10 years. Of the more than 1,400 judges who responded, 63 percent said they thought it had declined; less than 8 percent thought it had improved; 29 percent thought it had stayed the same.
