intro: The Missouri Bar has released a report on what lawyers think of the 45 judges up for reinstatement this November. Lee McGuire has more from Jefferson City.

The Bar asked attorneys whether they think the judges up for reinstatement are doing a good job. Marvin Wright, former president of the Bar, says lawyers know more about these judges than the average voter might.

Contents: Wright says lawyers are in a stronger position to evaluate the performance of judges.

Although a majority of lawyers suggested voters keep all of the judges on the bench, the support margins for St. Louis County circut judges Iris Ferguson and Brenda Lotfin were the smallest. Copies of the survey are available at libraries and courthouses. In Jefferson City, Lee McGuire, KMOX News.
