Representation Matters: Woman Judge Blasts Guards Over Treatment of Female Inmate
Charles Clymer

For a possibly somewhat more accurate idea of the figures, you may wish to take a look at the documentation of a leading criminal “satire” case, at:

Of seventeen or eighteen judges involved in the case so far, it appears that fourteen are women. All of the decisions so far also appear to be written by women (two of whom are former prosecutors), apart from the “First Amendment dissent” written by a single, isolated, male judge who was until recently the chief judge of the New York Court of Appeals, and who is now retired.

As my parenthesis in the above paragraph indicates, perhaps an equally pressing question would be: what percentage of judges in America today are former prosecutors?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
