Unfortunately, the president of the STJ, Humberto Martins, lamented the death of his colleague. “The Superior Court of Justice offers its condolences to the family of Minister Paulo Medina, who served in the court for nine years. May God, in his infinite mercy, console everyone for the inestimable loss,” he commented, in a note.
Medina served at the Court between 2001 and 2010, while teaching law at universities in Minas Gerais. Before going to the judiciary, he was elected councilor by the municipality of Rochedo de Minas.
Still in the courts, the minister practiced law from 1965 to 1968, when he was approved by the judge. In 1991, he became a judge at the Court of Justice of Minas Gerais (TJMG).
The minister has also chaired the associations of Mining Magistrates (Amagis), Brazilian Magistrates (AMB), and the Latin American Federation of Magistrates (Flam).
