Wash. justice misses arguments due to health issue

OLYMPIA (AP) — A Washington Supreme Court spokeswoman says “unexpected health concerns” will likely keep Justice James Johnson off the bench for the remainder of the court’s winter term.

The News Tribune reports that Johnson has been missing from oral arguments for the past several weeks.

In an email, court spokeswoman Wendy Ferrell said Johnson continues to work on cases “as possible” but is scheduled to be out for the remainder of the court’s current term.

Ferrell says temporary justices filled in during oral arguments on Feb. 13, 25 and 27, and Johnson is expected to miss oral arguments on March 13, 18 and 20.

Johnson was first elected to the court in 2004. He was re-elected in 2010.
