Supreme Court affirms Commissioner Goldmark’s defense of state trust lands
State high court denies Attorney General’s motion for reconsideration

OLYMPIA – “I am pleased to hear that the Supreme Court has denied the Attorney General’s motion for reconsideration. The Supreme Court has affirmed the requirement that the Attorney General represent the Commissioner of Public Lands. We can now close this chapter and move forward. My obligation has always been to protect the state’s natural resources and our ability to generate non-tax income for schools and counties. It is unfortunate that we had to take the Attorney General to court to compel him to represent the state’s interest.”

Motion to reconsider denied
On September 1, 2011, the Washington State Supreme Court ruled seven to two in favor of the Commissioner of Public Lands in the writ of mandamus against Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna. The Attorney General filed a motion for reconsideration. On February 7, 2012, the Supreme Court denied the motion for consideration (N-84704-5).
