Judge refuses to clarify rulings

The Seattle Times reports: "Chelan County Superior Judge John Bridges today declined to issue an order clarifying a series of rulings he made in the governor's election lawsuit earlier this month."

Bridges signed the order proposed by the Republicans, which doesn't change anything from what happened on February 4th.

However, "[Bridges] said issues raised by Democratic Party attorney Kevin Hamiltion, particularly about standards of proof for illegal votes, need to be addressed in court."

Republicans also asked Bridges to set a date for trial in April, but he refused.
