As an attorney and trustee of the Ross Historical Society, I couldn't be more honored to be hosting retired California Supreme Court Justice Kathryn Werdegar for a live interview about her experiences on our State's highest court! Werdegar, who was appointed by Governor Pete Wilson, served as an Associate Justice from 1994 to 2017.
Werdegar earned her B.A. with honors at the University of California, Berkeley and then attended the University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall), class of 1962, before completing her J.D. degree at the George Washington University Law School, where she graduated as valedictorian of her class. While at Boalt Hall, Werdegar served as editor-in-chief of the California Law Review.
Werdegar, a former Court of Appeal justice and U.S. Department of Justice attorney, was a widely respected jurist and was considered a moderate on the court. When she announced her retirement, Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye said Werdegar was "a valued colleague on a court that strives to protect Californians' civil and constitutional rights."
She will be interviewed by Ross Mayor Beach Kuhl. Hope you can join me on April 5th at the Marin Art & Garden Center in Ross! See the event flyer below or contact me directly for more information.
