Washington Lawyer Defense Project

By | March 26, 2018

Washington Lawyer Defense is now Washington Lawyer Defense Project.

Efforts called “Washington Lawyer Defense” begun early on, are still on-going in one way or another.  Today, however, the efforts have expanded into a broader effort, a larger project. So, the name change.   Washington Lawyer Defense Project. 

For example, as the work progressed, other seemingly matters would arise.  E.g., Appellate judges who “retain” jurisdiction of the case before them.  The only jurisdiction had was appellate.  The efforts of the court of appeal had been completed.  When this happens, the Clerk of the Court issues a mandate to the trial court.  When the mandate issues, the trial court is again responsible for all aspects of the case.  Its original jurisdiction is no longer affected by appellate or revision jurisdiction.

You get the idea.  The effort of Washington Lawyer Defense will now be called what it has become, Washington Lawyer Defense Project.
