“We all mourn the loss of a truly great former Oregon Attorney General (1981-1991) Dave Frohnmayer. I’m pretty sure Dave is the one who described Oregon DOJ as providing the ‘gold standard’ of legal service to state government –and he made sure we did! He was, among his many other accomplishments, a lawyer’s lawyer, a brilliant scholar and teacher. Dave was my first year torts professor at the University of Oregon Law School in the 1970’s. Since then, he has been a professional colleague and dear friend and mentor. I will miss him very much and extend condolences to his wife, Lynn, his family and all Oregonians who are affected by this tremendous loss.”
