Del. gets "F" in report on financial disclosure reports for judges

Delaware gets a big fat "F" when it comes to financial reporting requirements for state Supreme Court justices.

"The more the public knows about judges at the top of these state level judiciaries, the more these judges will be held accountable and the more members of the public will be able to better trust the system," says O'Brien.



Delaware ranked 38th in the nation. The report finds the states with the best disclosure requirements--California and Maryland -- only got a grade of a "C."
