After 101 years of operation, the American Judicature Society (AJS) is dissolving, the ABA Journal reports. The AJS Board of Directors voted yesterday to dissolve the fair-courts organization and wind up its affairs. The group’s president, Tom Leighton, cited a challenging “membership model” for nonprofits, including AJS, in the press release. The National Center for State Courts is expected to take over the AJS Center for Judicial Ethics, and homes are being sought for the group’s peer-reviewed journal Judicature and its Internet resource on judicial selection in the states.
