American Bar Association gives Judge Roberts its Highest Rating

Category: Miscellaneous Musings

The American Bar Association traditionally vets candidates for the Supreme Court by reviewing their judicial history and cataloging interviews with associates, colleagues and opposing counsel. In doing so for Judge Roberts, the ABA Journal reports that "The ABA Standing Committee on Federal Judiciary found John Roberts 'well-qualified,' its highest rating, in his nomination to be chief justice of the United States, the committee chair testified Thursday.
In prepared testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, chair Stephen L. Tober said Roberts meets the highest standards required not only of a justice but also of a chief justice." See ROBERTS GETS ABA'S HIGHEST RATING
