Mauro v. County of Kittitas

In Mauro v. County of Kittitas, 26 Wn. App. 538, 613 P.2d 195 (1980), Mauro failed to pay a speeding ticket and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest. He later paid the ticket and received a receipt reflecting his payment. For unknown reasons, the warrant was never recalled and Mauro was later arrested on the warrant. The court held that the clerk who neglected to recall the warrant was not entitled to judicial immunity, because the required act of recalling the warrant was not discretionary, but purely ministerial.
