Washington Courts: Press Release Detail
Judicial Fall Conference to include address from Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Wallace P. Carson Jr.September 19, 2003
Funding crises in Washington and Oregon courts and courts throughout the U.S., as well as the emerging issue of regulating the speech of judges, are issues that will highlight the 46th Washington Judicial Conference scheduled for Sept. 21 through 24 at the Sheraton Tacoma Hotel.
Oregon’s Chief Justice Wallace P. Carson Jr. will discuss drastic budget cuts to Oregon courts and how they have affected that state’s justice system — closing courts on Fridays was one necessary step — as well as outline plans for the future. Washington judges will also hear an update from Washington’s Court Funding Task Force, which is in the midst of a long-term effort to study the state’s court funding system and recommend strategies to provide adequate, stable funding for the future.
Other sessions for judges to choose from include preventing conviction of innocent persons, non-stranger rape and the neurobiology of trauma, the large number of defendants with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, what happens when a judge is sued, new court rules on speedy trials, and more.
