Four Judges (Catherine E. Bauer, Scott C. Clarkson, Ernest M. Robles, and Mark S. Wallace) of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California have asked the Federal Judicial Center (FJC) to survey members of the Bar to assess their performance. The judges’ decision to ask the FJC to conduct this survey is entirely voluntary and is part of their ongoing commitment to provide the highest level of public service possible. The FJC, which is the research and education organization for the federal courts, is located in Washington, D.C. The FJC has been conducting similar surveys for judges for several years.
The results are exclusively for each judge’s use in improving his or her performance; the FJC will not provide the results to anyone other than the judge and the results will not be used in the reappointment process. It is important to the process that all responses are anonymous. When responding, please do not include your name or any other information that might reveal your identity. FJC staff will not provide the judge with the identity of the people who responded, if they become aware of that information, and will redact potentially identifying information from any comments received.
