    “We are excited to return to the Skagit Valley after our successful traveling court experience at SVC last spring,” said Division I Acting Chief Judge Cecily C. Hazelrigg, who has coordinated a number of community outreach events in the northwest part of the state on behalf of the court. “Division I is grateful for opportunities to partner with educational institutions like Skagit Valley College in the shared goal of promoting both civics education and transparency in government. It is truly a delight to get into our communities and speak with neighbors about the work that we do.”

    Beginning at 9:30 a.m., Acting Chief Judge Cecily C. Hazelrigg (Skagit, Whatcom, San Juan and Island Counties), Judge Linda W.Y. Coburn (Snohomish County), and Judge Ian S. Birk (King County) will hear arguments in the following cases:
