Morris v. Blaker
In Morris v. Blaker, 118 Wn.2d 133, 144-45, 821 P.2d 482 (1992), the Court adopted the Mathews formulation, (Mathews v. Eldridge,(1976)) noting due process is a flexible concept calling for procedural protections appropriate to a given situation.
The degree of process afforded in a case, according to Morris and Mathews, depends on a balancing of these factors:
(1) the private interest to be protected;
(2) the risk of erroneous deprivation of the interest by the government's procedures;
(3) the government's interest in maintaining the procedures. Morris, 118 Wn.2d at 144-45.
