Panel ranks lawyers for judgeship

A bar association committee says five lawyers who want to replace Spokane District Court Judge Richard White are exceptionally qualified.

Four of 18 applicants seeking the appointment by county commissioners are well qualified, eight are qualified and one isn’t, according to the 11-member Judicial Evaluation Panel of the Spokane County Bar Association.

After interviewing the applicants, the committee said former District Court Judge Harvey Dunham is not qualified for the job.
