State Supreme Court Position 9 - September 21, 2012

September 22, 2012

This week, we feature a debate between the candidates for Position 9, the only open seat on the Washington state Supreme Court. Sheryl McCloud is a veteran appellate attorney who has argued numerous cases before the state high court, but has never served as a judge. Richard Sanders is a former state Supreme Court justice, who spent 15 years on the court before losing a re-election bid in 2010. He’s looking to win back a seat on the bench. We’ll find out where they stand on issues of judicial access, fairness, and conduct. Plus, our Insiders Roundtable shares their perspective on this judicial race as well as the latest polling of statewide ballot measures.
