TIME: Judges Are for Sale — and Special Interests Are Buying

October 31, 2011

TIME cites Justice at Stake and the recently released "New Politics of Judicial Elections" report, co-authored by the Brennan Center for Justice and the National Institute on Money in State Politics. Citing the report, the article states that "as money floods into judicial elections, we are getting courts that are filled with judges whose first loyalty is not to justice – or to the general public – but to insurance companies, big business and other special interests."
