The Spokesman-Review - Spokane's new citizens commission charged with overseeing police complaints opened its first meeting with many of the dreadfully dull but important questions that government work is made of: scheduling meetings, deciding leadership duties, learning the ropes of Robert's Rules of Order and the state public meetings law.

Editorial: Best choices for bench are Bugbee and Tripp - Wed, 22 Oct 2014 PST
The Spokesman-Review - Spokane County's eight District Court judges are up for re-election. Four are unopposed, an unfortunate but not unusual phenomenon for judgeships at all levels, including the Washington Supreme Court. Also unusual this year is the timing of the races, which come less than one year after "A Blueprint for Reform" recommended changes in the local criminal justice system that could make it more efficient, and better for taxpayers and offenders. The report's three authors criticized the District Court for its resistance to change and lack of care regarding the costs of jailing offenders or accused offenders. Read more...

Otter seeks full panel review of gay marriage ruling - Wed, 22 Oct 2014 PST
Spokesman Review - BOISE - Idaho Gov. Butch Otter wants a larger group of judges to reconsider the recent decision that overturned the state's ban on same-sex marriage. "I will continue defending Idahoans' self-determination and the will of Idaho voters who decided that traditional marriage is a core principle of our society," Otter said. The governor on Tuesday announced that he would file a petition seeking a review at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals by an 11-judge panel. A three-judge panel made the earlier decision ruling that Idaho's ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. Otter and Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden earlier requested that the 9th Circuit assign a full 11-judge panel to hear Idaho's case, rather than a three-judge panel. That request was denied. Wasden didn't join with Otter in Tuesday's petition. Read more...
