Today’s News For Judicial Wonks

For the three readers who follow the municipal court races: the attorney who worked to shut down the Rose Garden bar, and several Aurora motels is in the running for a judge position.

From Publicola:

Seattle Municipal Court judge Edsonya Charles—who received the lowest ranking of any muni court judge from the King County Bar Association—is being challenged by assistant city attorney Ed McKenna.

McKenna won a dual endorsement with longtime incumbent Charles at the 37th District Democrats’ meeting last night in South Seattle. Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes made the endorsement motion for McKenna saying the McKenna had the leadership needed to reform the muni court.

We’ll have more on the muni court races in the coming weeks. Somebody’s gotta write about these damned things.
