Sheryl Gordon McCloud

State Supreme Court Position 9

Justice Sheryl Gordon McCloud was first elected to the Washington Supreme Court in 2012 after nearly 30 years as an accomplished appellate lawyer. As the recipient of the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers’ highest award, the William O. Douglas Award, she was recognized for “extraordinary courage” in being willing to take on some of the toughest cases. Now, as a Supreme Court Justice, she serves as Chair of the State’s Gender & Justice Commission and was the recipient of Washington Women Lawyers President’s Award in 2015. Justice McCloud has participated in many significant cases that have come before the Supreme Court and was the author of the Court’s 2017 opinion in State v. Arlene’s Flowers, where the Court unanimously held that Washington’s Law Against Discrimination protects the rights of a gay couple seeking to buy flowers for their wedding and that the religious beliefs of the shop owner are not a bar to equal treatment.
