Kate Brown Appoints Judge to the Yamhill County Court
Cynthia Kaufman Noble will replace Judge Collins

Oregon's Governor Kate Brown has announced that she will appoint Cynthia Kaufman Noble to the Yamhill County Circuit Court.

Kaufman Noble will fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge John L. Collins.

Her appointment is effective immediately.

“Cynthia Kaufman Noble’s broad experience and history of service in the Yamhill County community make her an excellent fit for this position,” Governor Brown said. “I look forward to seeing her new role as a Circuit Court Judge.”

Kaufman Noble currently divides her time between her roles as Municipal Court Judge for the City of McMinnville, Chief Judge for the Tribal Court of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon, and as an attorney in private practice in McMinnville doing primarily juvenile defense work and serving as a family law mediator.

Kaufman Noble earned her bachelor's in fine arts from Syracuse University, and her law degree from Willamette University College of Law.

Kaufman Noble currently serves on the Tribal Court State Court Forum and the Ensuring Racial Justice Committee; as a board member for the Oregon Municipal Judges Association and the Yamhill County Bar Association.
