Liaison Committees

Superior Court

This is an informal but long-standing committee that meets monthly  at noon in the jury room of the Superior Court Chief Criminal Judge. Defense lawyers, prosecutors, judges and administrators attend and discuss systemic issues. Because the Superior Court bench is  well organized and led, this committee is an effective way to work through issues of mutual concern.  For scheduling questions, or agenda items, call Superior Court Administrative Assistant Heidi Clarke 509-477-4403.

District Court

This committee meets monthly over lunch hour at the offices of Philip J. Wetzel, at N. 901 Adams, about 1 block west of the courthouse. The committee is chaired by Assistant Public Defender Jay Ames, 477-4816.  The committee deals with local procedures and practices in District Court.
