April 2013 Bar Bulletin

Ellington Honored with Goldmark Award


On February 15 at the Westin Hotel, the Legal Foundation of Washington Board of Trustees presented retired Court of Appeals Judge Anne Lake Ellington the 2013 Goldmark Distinguished Service Award at the 27th Annual Goldmark Award Luncheon.

Attorney General Bob Ferguson was in the audience to hear Bruce Neas of Columbia Legal Services and Lili Sotelo of Northwest Justice Project start the afternoon with a recount of the creation of the Home Justice Project, which is funded by a grant through the Attorney General's Office from the National Mortgage Settlement.

LAW Fund President Mark Johnson of Johnson Flora followed and seized the moment to encourage giving to the Campaign for Equal Justice, mentioning that the Rainier Cup would be presented during the reception later in the afternoon.

Prior to ATJ Board Chair Kirsten Barron's presentation of the Goldmark Award to Judge Ellington, the President's Award was handed out to Mark Griffin and Margaret Wetherald of Keller Rohrback; Kim Williams and Rob Williamson of Williamson & Williams; and Jayson Sowers of Riddell Williams, to recognize their class action work and the importance of Civil Rule 23(f) in providing funding for access to justice.

Before and after the Goldmark Luncheon, the ATJ Board arranged for the ATJ Forum, presenting panels of interest to the legal community including the "Role of Lawyers in Social Justice Movements" and "A Conversation with the Supreme Court."
