2011 Judicial Evaluation
The Corpus Christi Bar Association had the State Bar of Texas Department of Research and Analysis conduct a judicial evaluation poll of the Association’s membership between September 19, 2011 and September 30, 2011. Of the 620 members of the association, 171 filled out a ballot (resulting in a response rate of 28 percent).
Respondents were asked to rate each judge on a series of questions, using a 5-point scale, with a rating of 1 indicating that the judge “Never” demonstrated the quality in question, and a rating of 5 indicating that the judge “Always” demonstrated the quality in question. Respondents were instructed to use their personal knowledge to evaluate each judge, and were instructed to evaluate only judges for whom they had sufficient knowledge to answer the questions. Thus, members were free to decline to evaluate any judge entirely, or to answer only selected questions regarding particular judges.
The following tables represent the results of the poll. In each table, the column labeled “Number of Responses” indicates the number of individuals answering each question. The average of all respondent’s ratings for each question is listed in the column labeled “Average Rating”. The columns labeled “Percent of Responses” indicate the percentage of total responses that fell into each category. Differences in the number of responses to different questions regarding the same judge are due to members who declined to answer particular questions regarding individual judges.
