John “Zamboni” Scannell files to unseat Barbara Madsen, Washington State Supreme Court.

John Scannell, a lawyer whose practice is limited to the US Federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, has always contended that Washington State’s judicial system operates outside the law in its having the Washington State Bar regulated by lawyers of the Washington State Bar — the ‘fox guarding the hen house’. Mr. Scannell has decided to take the bull by its horns and run for Supreme Court. Mr. Scannell has additionally criticized the other candidates and the incumbent, Barbara Madsen, in violating the ethical rules they swear to uphold — which proves his first point, our legal system is a good-ol-boys network where the “privileged” can escape accountability.


  1. Since the Superior Court Judges are employed by the County in which they are seated, would not that County be responsible for the illegal conduct of their employees on County Payroll? As well as the Superior Court Clerk?

    Both of which being criminally Corrupt in Pierce County, endangering the safety & well being of innocent citizens, one would be inclined to think that these issues would be of priority concern to the County Executive Official and the Regional County Council.

    But then again, here in Pierce County, County Executive Pat McCarthy is married to Judge McCarthy. So what chance does the public have in presenting hard evidence of Criminal Public Corruption within the Judiciary and Sheriff’s dept . to Pat McCarthy?

    On a different note, I can’t remember if I posted the response I received from Barbara Madsen’s top Office assistant in regards to Chief Justice Madsen and her side kick Clerk Ron Carpenter Misprision Felony crimes within the WSBA and the Wa. St. Judicial System?

    I was told that they really don’t use the law concerning Misprision of Felony Crime any more, so that is just not applicable any longer.

    Just wanted to make sure everyone is up to date on this, and don’t have the old idea that it is an Official Duty to report, or take Official Action upon solid information of Felony Crime/Corruption within our government or one of its agencies, associations etc.

    • right on the mark Bruce. these top lawyers have declared themselves rulers over citizens where constitutional provisions no longer apply. If the ‘misprision of felony crime’ statute which is a ‘federal law’ isn’t applicable… certainly Washington’s constitution Article 2, Sec 28(12), and RCW 9A.08.010 should take its place! That constitutional provision PROHIBITS “Legalizing, except as against the state, the unauthorized or invalid act of any officer.” Therefore if any “public offical” commits a crime it would be unlawful, per RCW 9A.08.010, for any law enforcement official to whom this crime is reported to ignore that crime as it would be altering what Article 2, Sec 28(12) prohibits!
