“Last night we lost a giant in the Oregon legal profession and a dear friend. Hardy Myers was a lawyer’s lawyer, a true professional, and a friend to all who met him. Many of the Oregon Department of Justice’s current staff worked under Hardy’s leadership during his twelve years as Oregon AG, and his legacy and strong work ethic lives on through each of them. He was a public servant who spent his career fighting for Oregonians. There are no words to describe the loss we are all feeling today, except to say that he was simply beloved—and remains so forever in our hearts. The entire Oregon DOJ sends our sincere condolences to Mary Ann and the rest of Hardy’s family.”
