Seattle Times Editorial Captures the Essence of MHB’s Race Discrimination Case Before the Washington Supreme Court

Posted by efelle creative Support

On May 5, 2016, the Washington Supreme Court heard oral argument in an MHB race discrimination case that alleges that Western State Hospital and the Washington Department of Social and Health Services unlawfully use race to assign hospital workers to patients when delusional patients make racist threats.  Seattle Times editor Jonathan Martin captures the essence of the dispute in this well-written piece.  The case is being litigated by MHB lawyers Jesse Wing and Joe Shaeffer.
