Hemp Harvest Picnic!!!

From: brendon
Sent on: Sunday, July 12, 2009 12:40 PM
I am putting together an event in south King County to support the use of industrial hemp and the right of the local farmers to to grow it. would any body like to help me work on this? I would also like booths and banners. So any group can just pay a fee and be represented. the Libs have always had a pro legalize platform, no doubt you would fit right in. I will have more information later. If you are interested please email me at [address removed]. Thanks.

It is the Superior Courts, and not the ABA/WSBA, that technically have oversight of whether someone can be admitted as an officer of the court.? Though, admittedly, it's pretty much impossible to do anything in this area without the blessing of the bar.

Election requirements may differ by region. The Washington Public Disclosure Commission has information on filing?requirements and other resources for judicial candidates.

?
King County Elections will also have guidelines available on-line:

?
The courts may also give some insight into what?an?appellate judge does:
http://www.courts.wa.gov/appellate_trial_courts/
?
Without even looking at it, I can pretty much guarantee you need a J.D./LLM/or other equivalent degree in law--though depending on the jurisdiction, there may be minimum?residency or?other requirements.??I believe you've missed filing week for this election, but you may still be able to?run as a write-in candidate,?if you otherwise qualify.?

? This is for federal Judge
?
Answer: Article III of the United States Constitution does not list any specific requirements to be a federal judge. It only requires the President to appoint judges with the advice and consent of the Senate.
In reality, the president accepts recommendations from senators and/or congressmen of the state in which the judge will serve. Typically, the president accepts recommendations from legislators of his own party. Some states, such as New York, Wisconsin and California, have nominating commissions appointed by state legislators that make recommendations for federal judicial nominees.
Once the recommendations are received, the Department of Justice reviews the nominee's background to help the president make his decision. When the president nominates someone for an open position on the federal bench, the Senate Judiciary Committee conducts their own investigation into the nominee's qualifications. There is no set list of requirements, but Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, who sits on the Judiciary Committee, has said that he personally believes the Committee should focus on the qualifications of a nominee: honesty, competence, temperament, and the nominee s appreciation for the proper constitutional role of an Article III judge. Statement of Senator Orrin Hatch, July 1, 1999.
Members of the public are invited to comment on the nomination. The American Bar Association's judiciary committee evaluates each nominee's professional qualifications and provides senators with an opinion about whether they believe the nominee is qualified based on their evaluation of the nominee's integrity, professional competence and judicial temperament. Although not binding, some members of the Senate give weight to this non-partisan evaluation, among other factors, when deciding whether a nominee should be confirmed.

However I do believe it is necessary to have a JD degree for the court of appeals. The ABA will have oversight here and if your experience is lacking there may be issues. But on the bright side it would entail publicity and would be a strong fooing for politics.? Hope this helped and best of luck in your endevours

I have another funny question, if anyone wants to take a crack at answering it for me.? Anyone know what the prerequisites might be to run for a judge position?? Court of Appeals, Division 1, District 1 in King County is open for election this year, and although it's non-partisan, I'm still thinking about registering that and throwing my hat in the ring.? I haven't done a lot of research on this yet, so if you can fill in some gaps in my knowledge for me, that would be wonderful.Thanks.Mike
