Protecting Bridle Trails
King County Judge George Finkle incompetent on land use case. He deceived the parties before him. While thinking his court room was his court room he actually had an entire other court room dedicated to one of the largest trials in King County history.
Washington State, through the Attorney Generals' Office, sued 14 tobacco companies for damages related to smoking. There were also three other states involved in the case. Judge Finkle had no law clerks and was all on his own in that case. It seems humanly impossible that he could have given his full attention to that matter and also give attention to the trail matter in his other court room. Finkle had to approve 30,000 documents. That's read them and hear argument on why yes or why no. The calculation of how many he had to do a day is incredible. He gave our case before him no importance. He was the Judge of a billion plus dollar case and that it would give him importance and standing. But he screwed up our case big time. He lost control of it and it became a circus.
During a simple Land Use case involving a dedicated bridle trail, Judge George Finkle has no clue on applicable law.

Please pass this on to the most incompetent judge of King County. If he is not incompetent on the law which was applicable on the matter before him then have him answer the questions which have been posed to him.
Judge George Finkle, King County superior court judge, 1998, is a very incompetent King County land use judge. Judge Finkle had no known knowledge of King County land use law. Judge Finkle has been asked by written letters to provide his research or specific knowledge on King County land use law. Judge Finkle has failed to provide the requested information presumably because he knows he was incompetent. It’s assumed that Judge Finkle did no independent research regarding the law and land use of platting regulations in King County in 1966 while he presided over the matter of dedicated bridle trail easements in bridle trails, Bellevue, Washington. Judge Finkle was ignorant of the King County law. Judge Finkle has no conscience on his missteps and ignorance of the law and the damages he has done. Judge Finkle is a disgrace to the legal foundations of justice in the United States of America. He has no concern for “justice for all." He made a mistake with no research on the land use law and has no concern regarding that.
Now, Thomas Kuffel, King County senior prosecuting attorney is protecting Judge Finkle from Judge Finkle's incompetence. What we have here now is a cover up of the legal negligence of a King County superior court judge who was incompetent of the law in the case before him. Additionally, Janine Joly, has been brought into the matter of this incompetence of Judge Finkle to protect Judge Finkle of his incompetence. Thomas Kuffel and Janine Joly have no interest in Justice for the people but rather to protect a government judge from his incompetence of the law.
Thomas Kuffel, Senior Prosecuting Attorney for King County has been asked to enforce Platting Law and Conditions required on the plat of Compton Green. While it would appear that he has an obligation to enforce the Law, he is in law enforcement, Thomas Kuffel has refused to date to do so. His failure to enforce the Law has effected how the use of the dedicated bridle trails can be used. While taxpayers should expect him to enforce the law, Thomas Kuffel neglects doing so. He is negligent in performing his duties to the people who pay for him to enforce the law.
Judge George Finkle, Superior Court Judge of King County, 1998 (KC), Washington was incompetent, (Lacking Knowledge of Constitutional Law, Washington State Law and KC Platting Law), while he presided over Land Use Case. Judge Finkle's incompetence of the “LAW” caused damages of over $1,000,000 to defendant.
More information on what the attorneys did not inform Judge Finkle about so that he could make a just ruling within the Laws of Washington and King County.

Citizens Protecting Bridle Trails
Hello friends, neighbors, residents and visitors to Bridle Trails, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond in Washington, USA
It is the mission of the Citizens Protecting Bridle Trails and this website to tell the story of Bridle Trails, Washington and the difficulties most recently encountered to keep this most beautiful area the equestrian and pedestrian friendly community it was meant to be.
What are the Difficulties?
The difficulties come from people who move into the area, knowing it’s Bridle Trails (horse country) and then ruin or disrespect the infrastructure, the trails and easements for trails, which is so most important to keeping the community equestrian and pedestrian friendly. The infrastructure is known as the bridle trail easements. This has been happening for quite some time and now complete historical trails have disappeared. The easements are public property.
A Bridle Trail Easement
A bridle trail easement would be where you would find a bridle trail designated to allow safe equestrian and pedestrian travel from point to point (i.e., home to school, school to Park, home to Park, home to friends' home).
In the 1940s Bridle Trails State Park was dedicated as a State Equestrian Park. Since then the surrounding area has been developed into an equestrian community. Many previous property owners actually required developers to maintain the character of Bridle Trails by limiting the developers to horse property size lots.
The Compton Green plat is one of the developments that was required to keep within the guidelines set by the previous land owners. The previous owners required that horse lots be platted and that all those lots were allowed to maintain horse barns and horses. Compton Green is about 90 acres of lush greenery of old growth trees and undercover. The previous owners of much of what today is Compton Green also required that all future owners of property in Compton Green had to allow people and horses to cross Compton Green to enter and exit from Bridle Trails State Park. This is what has been referred to as the easement of 1942.
The Easement of 1942
The Easement of 1942 required that Compton Green allow all owners of property from sections 21, 22, 27, 28 to come across Compton Green to enter and exit from Bridle Trails State Park. All property owners between 116th Ave NE on the west and 148th Ave NE on the east and between NE 40th ST on the north to NE 8th ST on the south have a private property right to come across Compton Green to get to Bridle Trails State Park. Today over 3,800 property owners have that private right. In 1966 McGrath Homes came to acquire the Compton Green land and proposed to King County a development of residential lots.
