STATE SUPREMES SWEARING-IN. This morning’s ceremony for the swearing in of Chief Justice Gerry Alexander, Justice Barbara Madsen & Richard Sanders, and Justice-elect James Johnson was a delight. AG-elect Rob McKenna gave a wonderful introduction to Justice Sanders and Sen. Slade Gorton likewise made a fantastic intro to now-Justice James Johnson. All in all, it was a wonderful event, with Rabbi Lapin providing some words at the close of the event, with Justice Sanders even making a joke about dead people voting.

But by far the most electric moment was when Justice James Johnson took his seat on the Court. He will be an excellent jurist and the Court—and all of Washington State—will be better served by his presence in that group.
