No. We hope to contribute to a more informed public discussion. In the past, citizens typically had little or no information on the records of their judges. Information they did have tended to be anecdotal and limited to a highly publicized case or two. This did not constitute a sound basis for assessing a judge's record. It also was unfair to the judges. Oklahoma citizens now will have reliable, empirical judicial ratings of their supreme court. These ratings are based on issues of civil liability that are important to their families, places of employment, and communities.
