In Memoriam: Administrative Law Judge Richard D. Mills

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on January 4, 2012

Administrative Law Judge Richard D. Mills passed away on December 10, 2011 in Diamondhead, Mississippi at the age of 79.

Judge Mills had a long and distinguished career at the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Administrative Law Judges (OALJ). He served as the District Chief Judge at OALJ’s Metairie, Louisiana district office, and continued work as a highly respected and popular settlement judge and mediator even after ending actively hearing cases before the Department.

Judge Mills was born in St. Louis, Missouri, served as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Army, and attended Washington University. He practiced Labor Law in St. Louis until 1983, at which time he became an Administrative Law Judge.

A full obituary and funeral service information is found on the website of the Gulfport Sun-Herald.

Judge Mills set an example for us all to follow, and he will be greatly missed
