Judging judges, coming soon

When I get back to WNYC later this year, we’ll be working on a super exciting project. We won a prototype grant from the Knight Foundation to develop a tool on judicial elections.

We’ll be helping people “to make more knowledgeable decisions about judicial elections through a tool that will provide key information, insights and context about candidates, their views and the court system.”

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how courts work (and how they don’t), and I’m looking forward to spending even more time thinking about this soon. Also psyched to be working with the extremely talented Sarah Ryley, who is teaching a class at the New School that’s contributing to the project.

ps. Sarah just wrote an amazing court-related story for the Daily News and ProPublica, about the NYPD kicking people out of their homes through so-called “nuisance abatement” laws.
