The field of lawyers seeking the Jefferson County Superior Court bench has been pared to three.
Gov. Gary Locke this week will interview Karen Gates Hildt, Rebekah Ruth Ross and Craddock David Verser in Olympia.
The governor is expected to be at Jefferson County Courthouse in Port Townsend on Feb. 27 to make a mid-day announcement naming the next Superior Court judge.
That person will be elevated to the bench left vacant last month when Thomas J. Majhan, 67, died while undergoing cancer treatment.
