WAC 296-14-940

Removal of special assistant attorneys general.

(1) RCW 51.12.102 and 51.24.110 and WAC 296-14-900 through 296-14-940 do not give private attorneys on the special assistant attorneys general lists any right to expect employment.
(2) Private attorneys, unless representing the department in a specific case, must not:
(a) Refer to themselves as "special assistant attorney general"; or
(b) Include this designation on any correspondence or pleadings relating to services.
(3) The department, in conjunction with the office of the attorney general and the Washington State Bar Association, may remove an attorney for cause from the lists of attorneys eligible to represent the department. Cause includes, but is not limited to:
(a) Misuse of the designation "special assistant attorney general";
(b) Lapse of any qualification; or
(c) Failure to meet performance requirements of the department contract.
(4) After one year an attorney may write to the department and request to be placed on the lists of attorneys eligible to represent the department again. The department in its discretion may place the attorney on its lists again.
(5) If the department removes an attorney from the lists a second time, or if the department decides not to place a removed attorney on its lists again, the department must notify the office of the attorney general to cancel the appointment. The department may refer the attorney to the Washington State Bar Association for consideration of disciplinary action. The attorney must reapply for appointment.
