The Los Angeles County Bar Association is saddened by the passing of the Honorable Arthur L. Alarcón, Senior Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, at 89 years of age.

Judge Alarcón will be greatly missed by his family and friends, including the LACBA community.
