Superior Court Judge Richard M. King will host a special presentation of his stunning, heart- felt documentary, “VIETNAM: A Journey Back” at our August 25th meeting at the Matador.

Judge King’s documentary tells the story of his 2018 return to Vietnam with family members of two fellow Seabees, who died during a Viet Cong attack at Hill 494, on March 31, 1968.

It is with a heavy heart, and with the current tragedies in Afghanistan, that this presentation becomes even more relevant to the present day.

Regardless of political viewpoints, it is always a difficult decision for any administration to place our nation’s most prized resource, its citizens, in harm’s way. Similarly, It is becoming increasingly more difficult to then know when to bring them home.

Wars, or conflicts as we now like to call them, don’t seem to have traditional beginnings and endings anymore. Whether it be Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan, it is becoming increasingly difficult to make decisions as to when to leave our soldiers in place or bring them home.

I hope to see you all at the meeting to learn more about these dire situations from Judge King’s first-hand experiences, and how the effects on individuals, families, and nations continue long after the events have transpired.

Join us at the Matador this month when Judge Rick King presents his amateur documentary: VIETNAM: A Journey Back!

Judge Rick King served in the SeeBees during the Vietnam War. His group came under attack by enemy soldiers, and several of his friends were killed.

Many years later, Judge King reached out to the families of those who had died, and urged them to join him back in Vietnam, at the very spot where his buddies had fought and fallen.

It was a chance to seek solace and redemption, and a living reminder of the struggles our veterans have to this day with the horrors of war.

This is their story.

Please note that MCLE’s are not available for this event. Nor will be presentation be available via Zoom or archived on the NOCBA website.

Close to four dozen NOCBA members and guests attended our November 18th Zoomcast to see Assistant Presiding Judge, Erick Larsh speak, and to hear about changes to our court system expected when Judge Larsh becomes Presiding Judge this coming January.

In his presentation, Judge Larsh, addressed topics including the statewide revenue shortfall, the continuing impact of the Covid pandemic, and the court closures/furloughs.

Judge Larsh was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as a judge of the Orange County Superior Court in 2005. He has served as Supervising Judge at both the Central Justice Center and the West Justice Center, and as Supervising Judge for the Domestic Violence Courts. Currently he sits as Assistant Presiding Judge, a term he began in January 2019.

In praising his colleague’s time as Assistant Presiding Judge, the Honorable Jeff Ferguson praised Larsh’s “ingenuity and foresight in weathering and helping to tame the Covid 19 storm battering our courts.”
