Gary Bashor


Gary Bashor JD ’83 was selected by Washington Governor Chris Gregoire to replace retiring Superior Court Judge James Warme. Bashor has been carrying out judicial duties part time since 1999, when judges appointed him court commissioner. He will have to run for election this fall for the remaining year of Warme’s four-year term, and he will have to run again in the fall of 2012 to retain the seat. He says he intends to continue the work he’s been doing to increase people’s access to justice, part of which involves adding legal forms to the Superior Court website, which he redesigned, and linking them to a free translation program.
