Bellevue lawyer files for Chief Justice’s supreme court seat…

John M. Groen, 46, an Eastern Washington native who is now a Bellevue attorney, is challenging state Supreme Court Chief Justice Gerry Alexander, who announced two months ago that he's running for re-election.

A Kennewick High School graduate (1977), Groen lives in Redmond.
