Eye On Olympia

Chief Justice questioned about ruling…

Gerry Alexander, the 70-year-old chief justice of the state Supreme Court, happened to have the bad luck to schedule his campaign endorsement interview with Seattle newspaper The Stranger on the day after the high court — including Alexander — narrowly upheld the state ban on gay marriage.

Read The Stranger’s transcript of the interview, which a clearly-uncomfortable Alexander at one point likens to an inquisition.

Interestingly, Justice Alexander repeatedly says that he expects the same-sex plaintiffs to file a motion for reconsideration, saying that he’d be “astounded” if one isn’t filed.
