State Sen. Stephen Johnson, R-Kent, said Wednesday that he’ll run against Justice Susan J. Owens for a spot on the state Supreme Court.
If he wins, the court may be able to save some money on stationery. This is a court, after all, that already has two other Johnsons: Associate Chief Justice Charles Johnson and recently elected Justice Jim Johnson.
Johnson — the senator — was elected to the Legislature in 1994. He went to law school at the University of Washington with another familiar Supreme Court name: Chief Justice Gerry Alexander.
