TAKING HER SEAT.

Byline: The Register-Guard

Eugene attorney Martha Lee Walters is robed by her husband, John Van Landingham, during ceremonies installing her as a justice of the Oregon Supreme Court on Monday in Salem. Justice Rives Kistler (center) looks on. At right, Walters is overcome with emotion after taking the oath of office. Gov. Ted Kulongoski appointed Walters, 55, to the post Sept. 18. Walters succeeds retiring justice William Riggs and is eligible for election in November 2008. She graduated from the University of Oregon School of Law in 1977 and has worked in Lane County her entire career. Walters represented disabled professional golfer and current University of Oregon men's golf coach Casey Martin in his successful lawsuit against the Professional Golfers' Association to use a cart in tournaments.
