2016 Judicial Survey Results are Here
Each year, members of the St. Joseph County Bar Association are invited to participate in an anonymous survey regarding the performance of the St. Joseph Superior Court judges. The results of this survey provide important information to the public regarding the collective opinions of the attorneys who practice in the Superior Court. In most election years, one or more of the Superior Court judges are on the election ballot with the question whether the judge should be retained in office. The information in this survey is offered to help voters make that decision.
