We note with great sadness and profound respect the passing Senior U.S. District Judge James A. Redden. He passed away peacefully on March 31, 2020, age 91. According to the family, a public service will be held after restrictions on gatherings are lifted.
We would like to direct your attention to this remembrance from U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge Sidney R. Thomas, Judge Redden’s oral history conducted by Michael O’Rourke, and these excellent articles by Michele Friedman on pp. 8-9 and Justin Thorp.
