Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson and his office has filed 39 lawsuits against the federal government since Donald Trump took office. Some of those 39 are fairly routine cases. But some are fairly spectacular — for example, the infamous travel ban — that suit was led by Ferguson. The idea here was to show each suit, explain — as simply as I could — what it was about, which of the suits Washington led and the status of each. Ferguson’s office likes to brag about how it hasn’t lost a case yet. But several of the cases have been dismissed without a victory.
