  • Lynne Riddle

    Hon. Lynne Riddle (Ret.)

    Senior Distinguished Fellow

    Lynne Riddle was appointed to the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California in 1988 and served until her retirement in 2002. Before her appointment to the bench, she practiced law in Santa Ana as a sole practitioner. During that time, she developed a special interest in bankruptcy fraud and often served as special counsel to bankruptcy trustees.

    Judge Riddle has remained active in the pursuit of justice. In 2004, she traveled to Oregon to serve as the AFL-CIO's Election Protection Coordinator for four months. Since 2014, she has been involved with the Community Action Fund Board for Planned Parenthood throughout the Orange and San Bernardino counties.

    She started her career in education and taught educational philosophy at various universities, including Syracuse University, California State University, Long Beach, The University of Iowa and Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

    She earned her J.D. from the University of California, Hastings School of Law, her Ed.D. from Syracuse University, and was a post-doctoral scholar in the Department of Philosophy at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

    Monica Ramsey

    Center Fellow

    Monica Ramsy is a storyteller, advocate, and educator currently pursuing her J.D. at the University of California Berkeley School of Law. After earning her B.A. in Gender Studies (with a minor in Natural Sciences) from the University of Southern California, Monica worked as a campus organizer for the Feminist Majority Foundation, as a sexual health educator for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, and as a researcher at UCLA's Iris Cantor Women's Health Education and Research Center.

    As a law student at Boalt, Monica works as a member of the Oakland Law Collective’s anti-sexual harassment and gender discrimination initiative, as a member of The Journal of Middle Eastern and Islamic Law, and as part of Berkeley Law’s Juvenile Education Advocacy Project. Monica is particularly passionate about anti-oppression work that focuses on the intersections between sexual health and mental health in communities of color. Ultimately, Monica hopes to translate her passion for feminist activism into a career devoted to promoting the sexual, emotional, and communal health of diasporic communities and other communities of color through a career in feminist, sociological, humanity(ies)-driven legal scholarship and advocacy.
