The police state lives on with the blessings of the majority of the Supreme Court in Washington State.
View the full dissenting opinion in Worthington vs Westnet here
WestNET appears in court to initiate forfeiture proceedings but doesn’t want to be called into court by another. WestNET acts like a legal entity when it enters into agreements that it deems beneficial but doesn’t want to be treated as a legal entity otherwise. WestNET agrees to keep records but maintains that it has no records, and contends that it would be impossible for it to keep records. These contradictory positions—once hidden, but now in plain view—impair the integrity of our prior decision in Worthington I and all related proceedings.
I would grant Worthington’s motion to recall the mandate and take judicial
notice of the newly discovered, undisputedly authentic evidence.
I respectfully dissent.
Gordon McCloud, J.
Worthington v. WestNET, No. 90037-0 (Dissent to Order)
