In 2021, the Arizona Supreme Court took an important step forward. It transformed the Arizona Commission on Minorities in the Judiciary to the Arizona Commission on Diversity, Equality, and Justice. Along with the name change, the Supreme Court put meat on the bones of the Commission’s mission. The presentation will cover that evolution and the importance of diversity, equality (which we only reach through equity), and justice in our everyday lives. It will include a few experiential sessions.  

Judge Gass grew up in central Pennsylvania but spent a year taking classes in Chihuahua, Mexico. He served as a law clerk to the Honorable Ruth V. McGregor before joining the Phoenix law firm of Lewis and Roca, LLP. He spent seven sessions working as Counsel at the Arizona House of Representatives, before going to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office.

In 2009, Judge Gass was appointed to the Superior Court in Maricopa County. He served on all four major assignments. He sat on the Arizona Bar Association’s Civil Jury Instruction Committee and served as President of the Arizona Judges’ Association. He and Judge Pamela Svoboda established the STRENGTH Court in Maricopa County. STRENGTH Court works with victims of sex trafficking who are in the juvenile justice system.

In 2019, he was appointed to the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division One. Over the next year, he will be chairing the Child Support Guidelines Review Subcommittee.

Judge Gass has been awarded the 2005 Arizona State University College of Law Alumni Association recognition for outstanding service, the 2014 Michael D. Ryan Award for Judicial Excellence from the State Bar of Arizona Public Lawyers Section, the 2018 Pete Dunn Above and Beyond Award as outstanding ambassador of the Judges in Arizona, and the 2018 Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law Judicial Officer of the Year.

He is on the Arizona Town Hall Training Committee and works with Arizona Anytown Youth Leadership. And he saves stray dogs on the side.
