The right surname, a law degree, some work as an attorney and a bit of political hustle can make someone a court judge in Northeast Ohio. But is that person truly qualified to be a judge? A new task force on judicial excellence aims to raise standards and scrub the politics from the process. Republican and Democratic party leaders are on board, too. But can the process really bring qualitative change to the local bench? We’ll take oral arguments Wednesday at 9:00 on the Sound of Ideas.


Michael Ungar, president, Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association
James Robenalt, co-chair, Task Force on Judicial Excellence
Judge Timothy E. McMonagle, co-chair, Task Force on Judicial Excellence
