Created in 1969 (Washington State Constitution - Article IV, Section 30; Chapter 2.06 RCW), the
Court of Appeals serves as the intermediary appellate court for the state of Washington. Statutes
give the Court exclusive appellate jurisdiction in almost all appeals from a lower court decision
and court rules require the Court to accept review of a final judgment entered in any action in
The purpose of the Court is to review cases and to render written opinions that state the grounds
for the decision. The Courtís objective is to provide this review in a timely manner.
The 22 Court judges serve six-year, staggered terms and are chosen by non-partisan judicial
ballot in the general election. Vacancies are filled by the Governor and the appointee serves until
the next general election.
State law (Chapter 2.06.020 RCW) requires that the Court be housed in three distinct divisions
throughout the state. These divisions are located in Spokane, Tacoma and Seattle. A Presiding
Chief Judge, who serves a one-year term, oversees the divisions including overall coordination of
business matters. Each division elects its own Chief Judge to handle administrative details.
The Court employs approximately 145 people and has a biennial budget of approximately
$28.4 million. Revenues collected by the Court are from fines and filing fees.
