SEATTLE — Justice James M. Johnson, a voice for property rights, law enforcement and open government on Washington’s Supreme Court for the past decade, announced his retirement Monday, saying his health had prompted the decision.

“This has been a difficult decision, as it has been a tremendous honor to serve the people of the State of Washington for the past ten years on over 1,000 cases,” Johnson said in a written statement. “While I have been grateful for this opportunity, recent health concerns have led me to decide that this was the right time to retire from the bench and spend time with my family and traveling.”
