Gov. Chris Gregoire has appointed Pierce County Superior Court Commissioner Patrick Oishi to a vacant seat on the King County Superior Court bench.

Gregoire made the announcement in a news release issued today.

“Patrick had a highly accomplished career as a criminal prosecutor followed by experience in civil litigation,” the governor said in the release. “This experience together with the multitude of cases he has presided over as a court commissioner will make Patrick a strong addition to the King County Superior Court.”

Oishi served as a Pierce County deputy prosecutor for more than 10 years before leaving for a private law firm in 2008. Last year, he was hired to be a criminal commissioner in Pierce County Superior Court, where he presided over arraignments and other pre-trial matters.

It could not immediately be determined whether he will be replaced.

    Oishi got his education in judicial corruption in the best class room there is in this state, the Pierce County Superior Court. Oishi, like the corrupt Division 2 Court of Appeals justice Marywave Van Deren, is movin on up after completing his education in judicial corruption from the Pierce County Superior Court also.
