Steve Alexander Campaign Releases “Judicial Criminal Scorecard”

October 31, 2002

Bremerton, WA – Steve Alexander, official write-in candidate for Position 4 on the Supreme Court, today released a Judicial Criminal Scorecard documenting the Supreme Court’s record on criminal justice issues. “Judges must take proper steps to insure the judicial role does not encroach upon the other branches of government. Is the Court impeding the orderly administration of criminal justice? You be the judge,” said Alexander, a former deputy prosecutor with over twenty-one years of judicial experience.

The Judicial Criminal Scorecard helps to highlight the differences in judicial philosophy among current Supreme Court Justices. At the Scorecard website you will find:

The names of all 144 significant[1] criminal law cases the Court heard from 2000-2002, including dates and citations.

Judicial Criminal Scorecard: The Scorecard lists the total number of cases each Justice heard, and the number of times each Justice ruled in favor of the State of Washington.
