Gov. Jay Inslee’s lawyer, Nick Brown, said earlier this week the governor takes into consideration the local bar’s opinion, and would personally interview one to two of the finalists.

It’s Judge Anna Laurie’s seat that is being vacated. She plans to enter retirement at the end of the month. Brown said Inslee would like to have somebody in place by no later than the first part of July.
