Washington Law Center has recently fought legal battles throughout the Washington Courts, including at the Washington Supreme Court, before the Courts of Appeals, and even in specialized jurisdiction forums like the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals (BIIA), there winning more formally-designated Significant Decisions in the past year than any other law firm.
What is a Significant Decision?
A Significant Decision is one that sets precedent with respect to the interpretation of law or public policy. These decisions are thought by senior adjudicators (judges) to represent determinations of law that should guide future litigators and the parties they represent.
A Significant Decision provides parties in litigation with an idea of how the court system will treat facts that are similar to those presented within the Significant Decision. They may involve an interpretation of key statutory terms, a proscribed limitation on the application of a statute, an interpretation and application of applicable court rules, or an allowance or limitation on state or private party actions.
How Does Washington Law Center Compare to Other Law Firms?
In the past year, Washington Law Center litigated questions of law that resulted in three Significant Decisions from the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals (BIIA). The next-most prolific claimant’s firm achieved only two, and most law firms did not achieve any. Thus, in the past year, no other law firm can claim to have participated in as many Significant Decision litigation efforts as the attorneys at Washington Law Center.
