Support Urged for Justices Newman, Nigro

Chancellor Andrew A. Chirls is asking Bar members to take note of the Pennsylvania Bar Association's recommendation that Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justices Sandra Schultz Newman and Russell M. Nigro be retained on the high court. Both Justice Newman and Justice Nigro are standing for retention in the Nov. 8 general election. Chirls also cited the recent endorsement of Justice Newman and Justice Nigro by The Philadelphia Inquirer in the editorial "Able justices deserve second terms."

"While the Philadelphia Bar Association doesn't rate state court judges or state court judicial candidates, the rating of the Pennsylvania Bar Association is very important," Chirls said. "Likewise, the points that the Inquirer makes in its editorial reiterate the strong argument for retention of these two fine jurists. They deserve our support."

Bring Commission Recommendations to the Polls

Chancellor Andrew A. Chirls has announced the results of the Association's investigation into the qualifications of candidates for the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas and Philadelphia Municipal Court in the Nov. 8 general election. The investigation was conducted by the Association's Commission on Judicial Selection and Retention.

In addition, the Judicial Commission also released the results of a poll of all Philadelphia lawyers conducted for the Bar Association earlier this year by Parente Consulting. The poll invited respondents to rate specific aspects of the judicial performance of each of the retention judges. Under the bylaws of the Association, the poll is not binding upon the Commission's deliberations, although it must be published with the Commission's findings. The complete poll results are available from the Bar Association.

The 29-member Judicial Commission includes lawyers and non-lawyers as well as the President Judges of Common Pleas Court and Municipal Court, the Chief Public Defender, the City Solicitor, the Chancellor, Chancellor-Elect and Vice Chancellor of the Bar Association and representatives of diverse interests within the community. Nearly half of the Commission members are African-American, Latino or Asian-American.

Each of the currently rated candidates was voted upon by the Commission. Those found "Recommended" satisfied a cumulative review of criteria including qualifications such as legal ability and training, trial experience, character, integrity, judicial temperament and mental and physical ability and community involvement. The complete criteria are available from the Bar Association.

The following judges, listed alphabetically, were found Recommended for retention on the Court of Common Pleas:
Hon. Willis W. Berry, Jr.
Hon. Gwendolyn N. Bright
Hon. Matthew D. Carrafiello
Hon. Amanda Cooperman

Members Urged to Vote Yes on Ethics Question

The Board of Governors recently adopted a resolution supporting the ethics bill passed by City Council and signed by Mayor John F. Street. The unregulated contracting environment in Philadelphia has bred a system in which businesses and individuals who want to provide goods and services to the City need to "pay to play" by way of significant contributions and/or favors to the political or politically-connected parties responsible for awarding the contracts.

A high percentage of "yes" votes is important because it sets a tone for City Council and other decision-makers to know there is a strong public sentiment for this kind of reform.

The bill seeks to make the contracting process more open, uniform and competitive. The bill amends Title 17 and becomes effective only after a change to the Philadelphia Home Rule Charter which itself requires approval by the city voters. A question will appear on the Nov. 8 ballot and the Philadelphia Bar Association, along with other organizations, is campaigning for voters to vote yes on the ethics ballot question.

Meet Ethnic and Foreign Media Nov. 9

The Public Interest Section and the Bar-News Media Committee will host a free Chancellor's Forum, "Meet the Ethnic and Foreign Language Media" on Wednesday, Nov. 9, from 12 to 2 p.m. at Bar headquarters, 1101 Market St., in the 11th Floor Conference Center. A complimentary lunch will be provided. RSVP is required. To RSVP, click here. Panelists will include Daniel Maldonaldo, director of operations for Al Dia; Darek Barcikowski, publisher of White Eagle (Polish) newspaper; Paul Kotrotsios, publisher of the Hellenic News of America; and Jorge Quintana, anchor for WFMZ-TV 69. Top representatives from the Portuguese and Ukrainian press also have been invited. Chancellor Andrew A. Chirls (left) will be the moderator for this program.

The forum is a continuation of the Association's effort to bring immigrant communities and the legal system closer together to reduce cultural and other barriers between people and the justice system. The program will focus on how to reach and communicate with the ethnic and non-English language media. While the event helps attorneys in the public interest sector let the ethnic and foreign-language media know about the legal and other services that they offer, all interested members of the Bar are invited to attend.

The Association held a similar forum on March 2, and 120 lawyers and legal advocates attended. Representatives attended from Korean, Chinese, Russian and Spanish publications.

Chirls said the program will also serve as the first meeting of the new Committee on Law Practice for New Americans. The committee will educate members of the Bar and the public about access to justice for immigrant groups and people who use languages other than English.

The committee will assist the Bar Association in taking positions on immigration law and the many other legal issues that affect the ability of immigrant groups and non-English speaking populations to have effective use of the legal system and other parts of our governmental system. The committee will also educate lawyers about how to serve clients and prospective clients who are not citizens or who do not speak English. The education will relate not only to immigration law, but to how immigration status affects other legal issues that the individuals face. The committee will work through the Association with courts and other agencies to improve access to justice for immigrant and non-English speaking populations. Robert C. Seiger III and Matthew D. Baxter will be the co-chairs of the new committee.

The complications of diabetes (whether juvenile or adult onset, also know as type 1 and type 2) - are the same - heart disease, stroke, amputation, kidney failure and blindness. Most of us know someone suffering from one of the forms of diabetes, the economic costs of which are staggering, estimated to be $120 billion in the U.S. alone.

    If you are interested in participating in this effort, please e-mail Elliott R. Feldman at efeldman@cozen.com. A meeting then will be scheduled to discuss and develop appropriate activities under the auspices of the Philadelphia Bar Association.
