Judge Christine Quinn-Brintnall died last week. The court’s press release is here: http://www.courts.wa.gov/newsinfo/?fa=newsinfo.pressdetail&newsid=2710
I worked for Judge Quinn-Brintnall for about eight months after she defeated Governor Locke’s appointee (whom I also worked for). She was a former prosecuting attorney for Pierce County. She scheduled a going away lunch on my last day at the Washington State Court of Appeals Div. II, the day of the Nisqually quake. Although the quake hit the appeals building like a semi, we had the lunch anyway.
She was a fine boss and she died too soon (age 62).
