The decision has been made to appeal both the Johnson and Ware petitions. This week I will file: 1. A Notice of Appeal to the Washington Supreme Court seeking direct review of Judge Toynbee's decision to dismiss Johnson's petition and deem CrRLJ 2.1c unconstitutional, per RAP 4.2(a)(2) and (4). Filing fee is $290. As noted earlier, in 2008 the Washington Supreme Court ("SCOW") accepted review of my Tasered calf case in Spokane but the issue was whether a dismissal of a CrRLJ 2.1c petition by a district court judge was appealable under the RALJ. The SCOW claimed it "improvidently" granted review and dismissed the appeal a few months before oral argument. Johnson's petition differs substantially as Judge Toynbee did find that Judge Buzzard's dismissal (even without a written order) was appealable under the RALJ and that she was "aggrieved." He also found probable cause and other factors in her favor. But he then struck the Supreme Court's own rule CrRLJ 2.1c as unconstitutional. I would think that the SCOW would have something to say about that. In so doing, there is a real chance that Baby Jay's death will not be in vain and that the rule, which I have invoked nearly 10 times in the last ten years, will be given real meaning. I will file a Statement of Grounds for Direct Review within 15 days of filing the notice of appeal to the SCOW. I anticipate it will take me 5 hours to draft. I imagine that LCPAO will oppose. If the SCOW grants review, then I will file two briefs and possibly three (responding to amicus) followed by oral argument before the entire SCOW. I anticipate this endeavor will take at least 50 hours not including travel and additional costs of $350-$500. 2. A Notice of Appeal to Division II of the Washington Court of Appeals seeking review as of right (per RAP 2.2(a) and (c)) of Judges Toynbee, Lawler, and O'Rourke's decision that to grant Ware's petition to empanel a grand jury would violate the constitution. Filing fee is $290. The issue of the public being permitted to petition courts to summon grand juries is one of increasing interest among victim's advocates, such as the National Crime Victim Law Institute and Animal Legal Defense Fund (a group, incidentally, I wholeheartedly support and encourage you too, as well). Those of you in Washington may remember the Woodcarver inquest in Seattle. http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/no-grand-jury-in-fatal-shooting-of-john-williams/ An attempt was made by the estate and family of John T. Williams to summon a grand jury under RCW 10.27.030 in King County. On Sept. 15, 2011, the King County Superior Court declined to empanel the grand jury but not because it raised constitutional concerns. The time has come for a higher court to weigh in on this subject, and whose memory is better than that of Baby Jay to do it? Once I file the notice of appeal, I will have 45-60 days to submit the first brief. LCPAO will respond. I will reply, along hopefully with amici briefs from NCVLI and ALDF. Oral argument would likely be set many months later. I anticipate this endeavor will take at least 50 hours not including travel and additional costs of $350-$500. The statute of limitations for felony charges will not run till April 28, 2019, and on gross misdemeanor charges till April 28, 2018. We have time to still try to make a difference, if not for all other victims, human and nonhuman, then for Baby Jay, on whose back two local branches of the criminal justice system turned. Your support is of course very appreciated.
King County Superior Court judges have declined to convene a citizens' grand jury to determine whether former Seattle police Officer Ian Birk should be charged with a crime for the fatal shooting of John T. Williams.

Today I filed the attached Petition for Review to the Washington Supreme Court. If you are at all interested in donating (non-tax-deductible) to this effort, to cover such expenses as the filing fee ($200) and legal and related fees to seek acceptance of review by the Court, you may go to https://www.youcaring.com/familyofkaisa-786026. Any sum helps. Thank you.


Yesterday, the City of Payette and Gary Scott of Payette filed a stipulation to dismiss his federal lawsuit without prejudice provided that the City strips from its code any and all breed-discriminatory references, prohibitions, and restraints. Scott v. City of Payette, U.S.D.C. D.Id. 1:16-cv-527-REB. Soon, the entirety of Payette County will be bsl free! Paul Fitzer, attorney for the City of Homedale, has also confirmed that Homedale will remove all breed discriminatory legislation as well.
