Bankrolling the Bench: The New Politics of Judicial Elections 2013-14
Bankrolling the Bench: The New Politics of Judicial Elections 2013-14, by lead author Scott Greytak of Justice at Stake and Alicia Bannon of the Brennan Center for Justice, is now available online.
The report is the latest in the New Politics of Judicial Elections series produced collaboratively by Justice at Stake and our partners the Brennan Center and the National Institute on Money in State Politics. But this year, it's also much more. Bankrolling the Bench is an interactive, data-rich website. The site is packed with information about who’s spending to influence our state Supreme Court elections, how much they’re spending, and why.
Check out Bankrolling the Bench to discover the latest election trends threatening fair and impartial courts, and watch video of our launch event, below. Then join us in standing up for our courts and fighting to keep them free of money and partisan political pressure.

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is Justice at Stake's first Honorary Chair. Justice O’Connor, America’s first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court, was nominated by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, and retired in 2006. She is one of the nation's most outspoken advocates for fair and impartial courts.
Fair, impartial courts protect the rights of every American. But across America, special interests are spending millions on elections and demanding that our courts answer to narrow, partisan agendas, not to the law.
Justice at Stake educates Americans about the crucial role of state and federal courts, defends judges from threats and intimidation, promotes diversity, and advocates reforms to keep campaign cash out of the courtroom. Our goal is fair, impartial justice for all. Learn more
