Thurson County Juror Scam
Thurston County residents have received calls demandng a fine by claiming the resident missed jury duty. The caller(s) claimed to be a sergeant with the sherrif's office and demanded as much as $1,000. Pierce County does not call to demand a penalty for failure to appear for Jury duty, so if you receive a call like this contact local law enforcement.
Departmet 19 Judge Linda C J Lee was appointed to the Appellate Court on January 3, 2014. While the Court is waiting for the new Department 19 judge to be named, attorneys/parties should continue to follow their case schedules and other case management dates. Non compliance letters will continue to be sent; hearings on Department 19 cases will continue to be held. Please contact Sandi Rutten at 253.798.7735 with any questions regarding Department 19 cases.
Pro Bono Settlement Conference Program
2013 END OF THE YEAR REVIEW
Superior Court thanks the volunteer Pro Bono Officers for their dedication and participation in the 2013 Pro Bono Settlement Conference Program.
The 2013 Pro Bono Settlement Conference Program accepted 279 cases into the program in 2013. Of these cases, 214 settlement conferences were held, with a 53% settlement rate.
It is unlikely with current budget issues that we will be able to fund a Pro Tem Judge Program in the near future. Thus, their continued service to the Court and those they serve is of vital importance.
Superior Court intends to continue the success of the Pro Bono Settlement Conference Program in 2014.
Thanks to all the 2013 Pro Bono officers for their effort and willingness to generously volunteer their time to help Superior Court and the citizens of Pierce County.
As always, attorneys interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact the Pro Bono Settlement Conference Coordinator Matthew Gray at phone number 253-798-3605, or the Chair of the Pro Tem Judge Program, Judge John Hickman at phone number 253-798-6779.

A fraudulent email is being widely distributed around the U.S. with the subject line
“Urgent court notice NR#73230”
(or another random number) that claims the receiver is scheduled to appear in “the court of Washington” on January 17. The receiver is then instructed to open the attached court notice and read it thoroughly, and is warned about not appearing. This is a “malware” email and will download a virus to your computer if you open the attachment. Please delete the email immediately without opening it. This email did not originate with the Administrative Office of the Courts or any Washington courts, and neither AOC nor the Judicial Information System (JIS) have been impacted in any way.
