Biography

The Hon. Rebecca S. Riley (Ret.) was a judge for the Ventura County Superior Court in California. She was originally appointed to the Ventura Municipal Court in 1995 by former governor Pete Wilson and was subsequently elevated to the Superior Court two years later. Riley was the only woman on the Municipal Court at the time of her appointment. She retired from the bench on November 15, 2015, after serving 20 years as a judge.

Riley graduated with her B.A. in English from the University of Wyoming in 1967. She would spend the next seventeen years working in a variety of positions, including eight years as a real estate broker, before deciding to pursue her law degree. Then, in 1984, she went on to earn her J.D. from Ventura College of Law.

She began her legal career as a civil litigator at the law firm of Waldo, Malley, and Lacey, where she practiced for two years.

Riley was then offered a temporary position at the Ventura County District Attorney's Office, where she started out as a deputy district attorney. The job turned into a permanent position that would last for the next ten years. While there, Riley worked for seven years assigned to the D.A.'s Major Fraud Unit and also served one year as a supervisor. She remained there until her appointment to the bench in 1995.

During her time on the bench, she presided over criminal and civil assignments.

Riley was named Judge of the Year in 2013 by the Ventura County Trial Lawyers Association.

Over the course of her career, Riley sought to promote education as well as help the next generation of legal professionals by serving as an instructor and speaker on the subjects of judicial ethics, criminal procedure, and new judge orientation.

She was a former faculty member of the California Judicial Council's Judicial College, and also served on the Governing Committee for the California Judiciary Education and Research Center.

A California transplant, Riley moved to the area in 1974 from her hometown of Gillette, Wyoming. In her free time, Riley enjoys hiking and spending time with her dogs.
