Courts - Missouri: "Should an attorney’s service on a merit selection commission force the entire firm to be recused out of cases?"
Bill Raftery of the blog Gavel to Gavel looks at this issue. He writes that under a bill pending in the Missouri legislature:
... a judge would be required to recuse if a party or the attorney for a party was on the commission that recommended the judge for appointment. Moreover, the ban would go further and extend to all lawyers in the attorney’s entire firm.
