Another Clackamas County judge has announced she will retire on June 30.
Deanne Darling was the first woman appointed a circuit court judge in the county back in 1995. She was in private practice for 16 years before then, some of those years spent as a pro tem judge and some presiding over traffic and misdemeanor cases.
Gov. Kate Brown will fill the judgeship from the same pool of applicants seeking the judgeship to be vacated on June 30 by Eve Miller. The deadline for applications is April 3; applicants must be members of the Oregon State Bar.
The appointees to both positions will be up for election in May 2018.
Darling, 63, was elected judge three times, most recently in 2014.
She earned a bachelor's degree in social work from Colorado State University and her law degree from Lewis & Clark College.
