The Commission dismissed allegations that the District and Municipal Court Judge’s Association (DMCJA); Sam Meyer; Brett Buckley; and Thurston County failed to disclose lobbying activities. In a citizen action letter filed with the Attorney General and Thurston County Prosecutor in May 2014, Arthur West alleged that Thurston County District Court Judges Meyer and Buckley lobbied on behalf of the District Court Judges Association during the 2012 and 2013 legislative sessions without disclosing their activities. The Attorney General referred the allegations to the PDC for investigation. PDC staff investigated the allegations and found that the District Court Judges Association properly disclosed its lobbying activities in 2012 and 2013 and that Judges Meyer and Buckley did not have a disclosure requirement. The Commission will notify the Attorney General and Thurston County Prosecutor that it has dismissed the allegations and recommend that neither take further enforcement action.
