District judge in Tacoma

[NEWS] Judge Franklin Burgess, Western District of Washington, has retired to senior status. A bipartisan merit-based screening committee, formed by the White House and Washington's two senators, will assist in the search for his successor. The new judge will join Judge Ronald Leighton as one of two active federal district court judges sitting in Tacoma. Information about the screening committee and the application process is on WSBA's website.

The big national news focuses on the new Chief Justice and the next new Associate Justice, but a lot of the important work of the judicial system is done in the district courts. (That's where trial advocacy takes place!)
