Judge Seals Child Protective Services Records

"A Thurston County judge sealed the Child Protective Services records of a deceased man Friday, despite objections of the man’s adoptive parents, who think the records show misconduct by the state. Superior Court Judge Christine Pomeroy said she was bound to follow the law, which required her to seal the administrative file."

Judge Pomeroy is the same judge who issued the "paper-only" ruling discussed on og-blog here, here, and here.
