Cathy Moore for KC Superior Court: “Exceptionally Well-Qualified”

From Cathy Moore for Judge:

cathymoorelogoFor too many, the promise of “justice for all” is out of reach. I am running for King County Superior Court to change that. With 20 years of experience working to remove barriers to justice in the legal system and community, I know how important it is to have judges who are committed to making the justice system work for everyone.

Rated “exceptionally well-qualified” and “well-qualified” by local bar associations, I am the only candidate in this race with judicial experience in King County Superior Court.

As a judge and commissioner pro tem in King County Superior Court for six years, I made the difficult judgment calls in family, juvenile and mental illness courts – the courts experiencing the highest growth in cases. As a tribal court judge, I kept defendants in Drug Treatment Court on track to success, reducing recidivism and the need for incarceration. And, as an administrative law judge with the Washington State Office of Administrative Hearings, where the majority of cases involved unrepresented low-income individuals, I diligently conducted full and fair hearings providing equal justice regardless of income level.

Over the course of my career, I’ve provided thousands of hours of free legal representation to those unable to afford an attorney, managed a legal services program for survivors of domestic violence, served as a consumer rights advocate for indigenous peoples targeted by predatory lenders, and served as an advocate for abused and neglected children as well as youth in foster care.

As an elected member of the Board of Governors of the Washington State Bar Association, I developed a funding source that continues to fund free legal services to those unable to afford an attorney. As elected Chair of the Seattle Human Rights Commission, I worked to bring greater transparency and accountability to the disciplinary process for police officers.

I have 10 years of litigation experience as a former public defender and family law attorney as well as experience as a mediator and restorative justice facilitator.

I have an impressive list of endorsers, including:

  • Washington State Supreme Court Chief Justice Barbara Madsen
  • Justice Steven González
  • Justice Mary Yu

I’m also endorsed by local and county Democratic organizations, labor unions, state and local representatives, women’s groups, attorneys and a host of community leaders.

I know that unequal access and racial disparity are undermining the fair and impartial administration of justice. I believe judges have a responsibility to ensure that the courts are accessible, fair, and equitable for everyone.

If elected, I will ensure access, equity, and fairness in the court.

Please support me on November 8th in the effort to make justice for all a reality in King County Superior Court!
