Endorsements

Benjamin Goldsmith, Managing Attorney, The Defender Association Division 

Jury selection is critical for obtaining a fair trial because my clients are indigent, and many are African American.  Judge North does not hesitate to remove jurors if they are biased against the defendant.

(statement made in my personal capacity)

Julie Kays, former King County Prosecutor

I have appeared in front of Judge North countless times on behalf of victims of sexual violence and victims are always given a voice in his courtroom.

Lisa Johnson, former head of the King County Prosecutor's Special Assault Unit

Judge North has compassion for victims of sexual assault and he works to avoid mistrials so victims of sexual assault are not further traumatized by having to testify several times.

Robert Flennaugh II, criminal defense attorney

As an African American attorney, I am very cognizant about how judges treat minority clients. When I am in front of Judge North, the experience has always been positive.

King County Superior Court Judge Veronica Alicea-Galván

When it’s in everyone’s best interest, Doug tries to give people a second chance by diverting non-violent first time offenders into treatment programs.

William S. Bailey, Professor From Practice, University of Washington School of Law

Prior being elected to the court, Doug fought tirelessly for clean air and clean water as a dedicated environmental attorney.

Jim Rogers, Presiding Judge, King County Superior Court

Because of the pandemic we have a backlog of over 900 criminal cases awaiting trial. The court needs experienced trial judges, like Judge North, who have the ability to manage trials expeditiously to ensure justice is served.

Emily J. Tsai

Attorney at Law

Judge North approaches every case before him with an open mind and always treats the parties evenhandedly.  He is a careful, experienced jurist who does what he thinks is right even if it is not what is easiest or most popular.
