Mitzvah #96 - Appointing incompetent judges

One is prohibited from appointing incompetent judges to a Bet Din.

A judge needs to be chosen for his knowledge of the relevant areas in Torah learning, and his fear of Heaven.

Applies to everybody, always, everywhere.

Verse: "Do not show favor in judgement" (Devarim 1:17)
