PORT ANGELES: Justice Owens speaks during pro bono lawyer luncheon


PORT ANGELES — Supreme Court Justice Susan Owens is used to firsts.

Owens recounted her first domestic violence case Friday during her first speaking engagement since her election to the court.

She is the first North Olympic Peninsula resident to win a seat on the high court.

The former Clallam County District 2 Forks judge of 19 years also spoke of her first few months as a justice during the annual Clallam County Pro Bono Lawyers Law Day lunch at the Port Angeles CrabHouse.

Owens said her duties as a Forks trial judge and the associated hustle and bustle, was very different from the relative quiet of her new surroundings.
