County Bar reports judicial evaluation results

The Monroe County Bar Association has released the rating results of two additional judicial candidates for Monroe County Court.

The association has rated Vincent M. Dinolfo and Vincent J. Rizzo as qualified.

Dinolfo is the Irondequoit town justice and Rizzo is a former assistant district attorney nominated to the bench in June to fill a vacancy created by the May 15 death of Judge John J. Connell.

The MCBA has a three-tier rating system consisting of “highly qualified,” “qualified” and “not qualified.” The ratings are based on an evaluation by hundreds of lawyers and judges who have professional experience with each person being evaluated, along with in-depth research and interviews by the MCBA’s 27-member Judiciary Committee. The evaluation process is designed to be fair and unbiased and is intended to be a public service to provide voters with useful information on a person’s qualifications in seeking judgeship. The MCBA encourages the public to assess each person seeking judgeship independently and make up their own mind on Election Day.

Rules for the MCBA’s judicial evaluations, are posted on its website at, or call (585) 546-1817.
