Retirement party planned for Probate Court judge

Eugene Arthur Moore, chief judge of the Oakland County Probate Court, will be honored on Wednesday, Nov. 17, at a retirement party in the Birmingham Community House.

The event will run from 5 to 7:30 p.m. and will serve as a farewell tribute to the 44-year member of the Oakland County bench. Fittingly, the cost of a ticket to the party is $44. Checks should be made payable to Judge Eugene A. Moore Retirement Party, and sent to Barry L. Howard, 3910 Telegraph Road, Suite 200, Bloomfield Hills, 48302. Call (248) 593-5000 for more information.

A native of Royal Oak, Moore was elected to the Oakland County Probate bench in 1966, and has served as chief judge on three separate occasions. A 1957 graduate of the University of Michigan, Moore earned his law degree from the U-M and spent six years in private practice before being elected to judicial office.

Last June, the Oakland County Bar Association presented Moore with the Distinguished Public Servant Award, an honor recognizing his "superior dedication to the OCBA, legal community, and the general public."
