Public Law Center Honors Its Founder

From Times Staff Reports

Twenty years ago, Warren J. Ferguson of Fullerton, then newly appointed to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, helped found Amicus Publico, a group of volunteer attorneys to help the poor with legal problems. That group eventually became the Santa Ana-based Public Law Center. At a dinner this week, the Public Law Center honored Ferguson, still on the federal bench, with its first Founders Award.

The Public Law Center's Attorney of the Year Award went to John P. Miller of Anaheim, a former Los Angeles County prosecutor who later became managing partner of the Orange County office of the Morris Polich & Purdy law firm.
