PRESIDING JUDGE IN SUPERIOR COURT DISTRICT AND
LIMITED JURISDICTION COURT DISTRICT
Judicial Services Employment Contracts. A part-time
judicial officer may contract with a municipal or county
authority for salary and benefits to serve as a judicial
officer. The personal service employment contract shall not
contain provisions which conflict with this rule, the Code of
Judicial Conduct or statutory judicial authority, or which
would create an impropriety or the appearance of impropriety
concerning the judge's activities. The employment contract
should acknowledge the court is a part of an independent
branch of government and that the judicial officer or court
employees are bound to act in accordance with the provisions
of the Code of Judicial Conduct and this Washington State
Court rules. Commentary The Board for Judicial Administration should establish a
model judicial services contract.
