Judging judges A prosecutor turned Presbyterian minister oversees a Web site where people, mostly lawyers, go to judge a judge: www.ratephillyjudges.com. Jerry Iamurri, a former Philadelphia assistant district attorney, said he thought up the forum when he cast his ballot in a recent judicial election and later noticed there was hardly a difference in victory margins between candidates who were recommended by the Philadelphia Bar Association and those who were not. “I thought, ‘Boy, I’d really like to see what the other lawyers think about these judges,’ ” said Iamurri, who is now a minister. Iamurri’s site debuted in December and gets about 1,000 hits a day and 30,000 a month, he said. It lets Internet users anonymously rate Philadelphia judges sitting on the Common Pleas and Municipal courts by rating their temperament, efficiency and quality of decisions-ratings are on a 1 to 5 scale. � American Lawyer Media ‘Apprentice’ role Someone was sure to recognize Jennifer Massey in NBC’s promo for the second season of The Apprentice. Massey, now an associate at Clifford Chance, didn’t return a phone call seeking comment. A firm spokesman confirmed that Massey is an associate at the firm, but wouldn’t say whether she’s on the show. While NBC hasn’t released the names of the 18 Apprentice contestants, a former Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison lawyer confirmed that Massey is in the NBC ad. The Apprentice follows young men and women as they try to impress real estate magnate Donald Trump. Each week, Trump assigns them a business task, and at the end of the episode he calls them into his boardroom and tells one of them, “You’re fired.” The last one gets a job with Trump. The season premieres on Sept. 9. � American Lawyer Media
