Should NC trust voters to elect the best judges? (access required)

If the North Carolina Bar Association has its way, voters in 2012 will be presented with an opportunity to create a drastically new, and complex, system of selecting the state's judges. But some attorneys say North Carolina's current system is fine, and the power to select judges should be left where it is: in the hands of voters. The NCBA is pushing Senate Bill 458, which would establish the so-called Missouri Plan, a system that allows voters to either retain or reject sitting judges who are nominated by a commission and appointed by the governor.
