OBS has been been giving recommendations from our friends in the legal community to vote NO on these judges. We will continue to update as we get information.

A former prosecutor under Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Clark is a member of the conservative Federalist Society. His racist attitudes towards Black defendants and attorneys are no secret. His ruling following, eg. resists bond reductions and fair sentencing.

Moriarity served as a prosecutor under the infamous Bob McCulloch and now works in the City of St. Louis. Her racial bias plays out in the courtroom as does her partiality to law enforcement.
