2011 Year in Review: Top 5 Stories

With the year winding down, it seems appropriate to review the top 5 stories covered by Gavel to Gavel in 2011. Over the course of the next week the 5 will each receive their own post, but for now, here’s the list:

  1. Record number of impeachment attempts against judges for their decisions
  2. Banning courts from using sharia law/international law
  3. Increasing mandatory retirement ages for judges
  4. Merit selection is dead (long live merit selection)
  5. Alterations of/to state supreme courts
