To replace Judge Suzanne Chanti

Governor Kate Brown has announced that she will appoint Erin A. Fennerty to the Lane County Circuit Court.

Fennerty fills the vacancy created by Judge Suzanne Chanti’s recent retirement.

Her appointment is effective immediately.

“For years, Erin Fennerty has maintained a high-volume civil litigation practice while passionately serving her community,” said Governor Brown. “Erin’s work ethic and practice experience will serve her well as a trial court judge in Lane County.”

After graduating with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Utah, she earned a law degree from George Mason University School of Law. Since then, Fennerty has practiced family law, education law, municipal law, and general civil litigation at the Luvaas Cobb law firm in Eugene. She serves as a pro tem judge for the Lane County Circuit Court. Fennerty is registered as a Democrat.

She is the past-president of the Lane County Bar Association, a member of the Lane County Family Advisory Committee, and serves on the Oregon State Bar’s Professional Responsibility Board and Family Law Section Executive Committee. Fennerty also previously served on the WomenSpace Board of Directors.
