Oregon judge reappointed to State Justice Institute
President Obama has asked the U.S. Senate to reappoint Oregon Supreme Court Justice David V. Brewer to the State Justice Institute board.
Brewers board term expires in September 2019. He needs Senate approval to continue with the national agency.
Brewer was a member of the Oregon Court of Appeals from 1999 to 2013, and was chief judge from 2004 to 2013. Before that, he was a state court trial judge and a partner at the law firm Lombard, Gardner, Honsowetz & Brewer.
The State Justice Institute is a national group that awards grants to state courts across the nation.
