Spokane Personal Injury | Justice Delayed Is Justice Denied

It was only a matter of time before the Washington State budget crunch started to seriously interfere with the court system. A Grays Harbor judge is threatening to close superior court unless the county commissioners infuse superior court with $75,000.

Superior Court Judge Gordon Godfrey is asking the court to mandate that Grays Harbor County commissioners provide an additional $75,000 to his court’s budget. Otherwise, he said in a declaration filed with the injunction, the budget cuts imposed on the court can only be met by requiring 31.65 mandatory furlough days of the court’s four employees. And the court will run out of money on Nov. 16 “and will have to close until the new budget year begins on Jan. 2, 2013.”
