Hey, it’s the digital age! It is possible to improve RI’s “Justice System” by providing a “Rate the Judge” feedback website. The “Rate the Judge” votes would be “anonymous” and limited to: plaintiffs/lawyers; defendant/lawyers; and those who have a “financial interest” in the outcome.
Suggested rating questions for each case:
1. What was the judge’s knowledge of “case law” regarding lawsuit
2. Did the judge render a ”final decision” in a timely manner?
3. Do you feel the judge’s decision was swayed by the “political self-interests” of their appointers (i.e., RI’s elected officials), or others?
Although the public cannot “vote” for any judge, they would be able to see the stakeholders’ voting results for each judge’s case.
