AWB endorses Supreme Court justices Charles Johnson and Mary Yu



AWB has endorsed incumbents Charles Johnson and Mary Yu in their bids for reelection to the state Supreme Court. The endorsements came after an extensive endorsement process that included interviews with the candidates, a review of campaign materials and a thorough review of how incumbents have voted in cases that affect Washington employers.

While Justice Yu was recently appointed and has no current voting record at the Supreme Court, the committee that developed the endorsements was impressed with her answers during the interview process and with her record as a King County Superior Court judge, said Bob Battles, AWB’s general counsel and director of AWB’s practices before the Supreme Court. “It appears that Justice Yu will be a fair and balanced justice with regard to issues facing the business community,” Battles said.

Justice Johnson received AWB’s endorsement once again based on his evenhanded rulings regarding business issues, Battles said. “Employers understand that justices are independent and won’t always rule in favor of the business community, but Justice Johnson is often the lone voice of moderation on business issues,” he added.
