Belated Note: Hon. Richard C. Baldwin Retires from Oregon Supreme Court

The appointment of the Hon. Meagan A. Flynn to the seat on the Oregon Supreme Court that had been vacated by the retirement of the Hon. Richard C. Baldwin reminds yr. hmbl. crspndt. that he had failed to note in these pages Justice Baldwin’s retirement.  In a belated correction of that oversight:

Justice Richard C. Baldwin retired from the Oregon Supreme Court effective March 31, 2017. He joined the Court in January 2013. He formerly served as a Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge from 2001 to 2012.

During his trial court tenure, his assignments included presiding over drug treatment courts and Multnomah County’s first Mental Health Court. His prior legal experience also includes:

* Law clerk to the Honorable Robert Foley, Oregon Court of Appeals (1975)
* Staff Attorney, Multnomah County Legal Aid (1976 – 1980)
* Trial Attorney, Baldwin & Brischetto (1983 – 1991)
* Director of Litigation, Multnomah County Legal Aid (1991 – 1995)
* Executive Director, Oregon Law Center (1996 – 2000)

Judge Baldwin has worked extensively with community nonprofits and civil rights organizations, including the Fair Housing Council of Oregon, the Oregon Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and Uniting to Understand Racism during his legal career. He served on the Oregon State Bar Board of Governors (1996 – 2000; Vice President, 2000), and the Oregon Judicial Department’s Access to Justice for All Committee (1998 – 2002; Chair, 2002).

Judge Baldwin grew up in San Jose, California, and graduated from San Jose State University (B.A., Philosophy, 1970). He received his Juris Doctorate from Northwestern School of Law at Lewis and Clark College (1975).
