SCOTUS does not care overmuch about different results reached by state versus federal courts on federal questions; the federal court's decision controls (at least within that circuit). If the decisions directly conflict, it doesn't matter what the WA Supreme Court thinks because it's an issue of federal constitutional law.
This can only end in tears.
