Oregon State Bar Bulletin — AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2011

Honoring Betty Roberts


Senators Diane Rosenbaum and Peter Courtney introduced Senate Concurrent Resolution 19 in honor of former Supreme Court Justice Betty Roberts, who died June 25, 2011. She was admired for many accomplishments, including being an original sponsor of the first bottle bill.

The resolution noted “her unflagging commitment to equality and justice and … her leadership in promoting the role of women in the law and in politics.”

Alas, the session ended before the resolution reached the Senate floor.
