The results of the 2014 Judicial Performance Evaluation are now available. The Judicial Performance Evaluation is a biennial evaluation of Nebraska judges by Nebraska lawyers, coordinated by the Nebraska State Bar Association. Evaluations are available for the past 8 years.
The results represent an average score on each characteristic for each judge, using the 5-point scale noted on the top of each page. No attempt has been made to determine an overall rating for each judge, nor has any attempt been made to compare one judgeâ€™s scores with those of any other judge. That is not the purpose of this evaluation and such a comparison would not be statistically valid.
No attempt has been made to verify the answers expressed by lawyers responding to the poll. Soval Solutions, LLC., an independent research firm in Lincoln, compiled the results. The responses represent a collection of individual opinions, which have been gathered and tabulated solely for their informational value. The Judicial Performance Evaluation does not present scientifically accurate conclusions, nor does the poll constitute an official NSBA opinion or position. It is a collection of individual opinions gathered and tabulated solely for informational value.
