Supplementing the Judicial Retention 2012 website, the ISBA has just this afternoon released the results of its ISBA Judicial Retention Evaluation - a poll of members' opinions of the appellate judges standing for retention this November. Here is the summary:

The yes/no retention results of the justices and judges (with their swearing-in dates) are as follows:

Justice Robert D. Rucker (Nov. 19, 1999): Y-87.8%; N-12.2%; 1,388 votes cast
