Gov. Kate Brown has tapped Appeals Court Justice Roger Dehoog to the Oregon Supreme Court.
Dehoog is replacing retiring Justice Lynn Nakamoto after six years on the state’s highest court.
Brown appointed Judge Ramon Pagan to replace Dehoog and has also appointed Kristina Hellman and Anna Joyce to the Court of Appeals, covering retirements.
The appointments take effect immediately, but all appointees will have to run in this year’s election to remain in their positions.
