Bar rates Muni Court candidates

The Spokane County Bar Association released its rating for the contested Spokane Municipal Court race.

Lawyers polled consider appointed Judge Tracy Staab well-qualified, and attorney Brian Whitaker qualified.

It should be noted, however, that the two candidates were separated by average scores of about of less than a half-point on the Bar’s 4 point scale for qualities such as integrity, ability, temperament, experience and suitabiliy.

And neither could be considered exceptiionally well known. They polled 184 lawyers, and only 103 were able to respond on Staab, and 113 on Whitaker.
