LR 2 JUDICIAL POSITIONS (a) Judicial Positions. RCW 2.08.065 provides that there shall be two superior court judges for Okanogan County. However, the authorizing legislation also requires primary funding of the newly authorized second judicial position from local resources by Okanogan County, 1999 Laws of Washington, c 245. Until that funding is available, there will continue to be just one department of the superior court with one judge and such commissioners and pro tem commissioners as deemed necessary and authorized by law. (b) Commissioners. The court shall appoint up to three Court Commissioners and such pro tem Commissioners and pro tem Judges as are necessary, in the judgment of the court, to complete the business of the court. (c) Authority of Commissioners. Court Commissioners shall perform duties as assigned by the court and shall have all powers conferred by law, including the authority to accept pleas in criminal matters. Commissioners may perform other duties as stipulated by the parties if authorized by the court. Amended Effective May 1, 2010.
