On September 10, 2013, the Oregon Asian Pacific American Bar Association (OAPABA) held its first inaugural Gala Dinner in Portland, Oregon, honoring Judge Lynn Nakamoto, the first Asian American to serve on the Oregon Court of Appeals. The gala dinner was a great success as it was sold out and well attended by judges, lawyers, and leaders of various bar organizations. The Honorable Ellen F. Rosenblum, Oregon’s first female Attorney General, was the keynote speaker. All future award recipients recognized at the Gala Dinner will receive the Judge Lynn Nakamoto award. OAPABA thanks the various sponsors, volunteers, and attendees who made the dinner a great success!
