Macinnes Named To Superior Court
Gov. Mike Lowry has appointed Seattle Municipal Court Judge Nicole MacInnes to a vacant King County Superior Court judge seat.
MacInnes is replacing Judge James McCutcheon, who died last week. She was originally to replace retiring Judge Liem Tuai, but Tuai agreed to delay his retirement to help the court system when McCutcheon died.
MacInnes, 50, must run for election to the seat in the Nov. 9 election and figures to face more than one challenger.
She has been a Municipal Court judge since 1989 and served for 11 years as a King County deputy prosecutor.
