OLYMPIA, May 6 (LSN) – State Supreme Court Justice Richard Sanders has been cleared of a reprimand he received for speaking at a pro-life rally. A Washington Judicial Conduct Commission reprimanded Sanders last May for speaking at a pro-life rally on the steps of the Capitol in January of 1996. Last week, a panel of nine Court of Appeals judges ruled that Sanders was not guilty of weakening public confidence in the judiciary by his remarks, as the Commission alleged.
