Gov's court pick gets free ride

Posted by David Postman

Tacoma attorney Jack Hill withdrew from his Supreme Court race today, leaving incumbent Justice Debra Stephens with no opposition. Stephens was appointed to the Supreme Court by Gov. Chris Gregoire last December.

Stephens had served a short time on the Division III Court of Appeals and prior to that had practiced law in Spokane. She replaced Justice Bobbe Bridge, who resigned from the court to take another job.

For all intents and purposes Johnson and Fairhurst are facing "no oppostion" as well.

What a shame.

What a pathetic system when there is no opposition. NO candidate is perfect, there is always someone who should step up. I am not an attorney and don't have a million dollars to step up to this challenge.

Terrible terrible terrible for our state that no one is opposing in this and in many other fields. I do not know the justice, but it is healthy for the state to have opposition and rigorous vetting of candidates who hold our lives and livlihoods in their hands.
