It was standing room only in the court room on Friday as Kathryn C. Loring was sworn in by Washington Supreme Court Chief Justice Mary E. Fairhurst as the San Juan County Superior Court Judge.
Judge Loring has replaced retiring Judge Donald E. Eaton as San Juan county Superior Court Judge. In addition to the Chief Justice, Judges Alan R. Hancock and Stewart R. Andrew were in attendance, along with Loring’s husband, her parents, and approximately 150 well wishers.
The swearing in by the Chief Justice was also a special occasion for Justice Fairhurst. She listed the impressive resume of Judge Loring’s current and past accomplishments, and noted with a broad smile that Judge Loring had served as one of her clerks.
Judge Loring was appointed to the court by Washington Governor Inslee.
