Pierce County Superior Court Judge Bryan Chushcoff finally put out a news release today explaining his electoral bid for seat on the state Supreme Court. It says, in part:

“I am running for the Supreme Court because we need experienced and distinguished judges who can make a difference on our highest court. The Supreme Court is a place to ensure public safety and to resolve disputes, not to expound personal philosophy. With more than 30 year’s experience helping people with their personal and legal difficulties, I have the legal scholarship to correctly apply the law. I know people’s problems and share their concerns. Washington should be a safe place for families and a prosperous place for jobs and business. I grew up here and met a payroll for 19 years. It has been rewarding to help people through difficult times as both a lawyer and a judge. I would be honored to build on this, my life’s work, as a Supreme Court Justice.”

    See the unpublished opinion filed June 1, 2008 on the Washington State Courts website that slams Chushcoff. That opinion makes it clear that Chushcoff does not understand basic legal principles and certainly should not be on our state’s highest court. Chushcoff is a named party and represented himself. As the old adage states, “He who represents himself has a fool for a client.”. Enough said. Voters you have been warned.

    Being one who has been actively engaged in monitoring the performance of a number of Pierce Co. Superior Court judicial officers, ie. judges, commissioners, and other officers of that court, I strongly recommend against voting in favor of any of the aforementioned officers to any elected position as a judicial officer for any court in Washington State, including
    re-election efforts.

    In my earlier post I inadvertently stated the opinion was 2008, when I meant 2010. Here is the cite:

    Docket Number: 64914-1 Court of Appeals, Division One
    Title of Case: Bryan Chushcoff, Appellant V. Paul Rutledge, Et Al, Respondents
    File Date: 06/01/2010

    The opinion shows that Judge Chushcoff did not understand the basic real estate principles and then helped the person he loaned money to attempt to thwart the judge’s decision by wrongfully recording two deeds of trust against a property in direct violation of a court order.
