Geraldine S. Hines (born October 29, 1947) was an Associate Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court from 2014 to 2017. She was nominated in July 2014 by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and confirmed by an 8–0 vote of the Governor's Council. She succeeded Ralph D. Gants, who was promoted to Chief Justice.[1][2]

Hines was born in Scott, Mississippi. She attended Tougaloo College in Madison County, Mississippi, and received her law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School. She worked in private practice throughout the 1980s and 1990s. She was confirmed for the Massachusetts Superior Court in May 2001 and promoted to the Massachusetts Appeals Court in January 2013.[1][2] She was sworn into the Supreme Judicial Court on July 31, 2014, becoming the first black woman to serve on the high court.[3][4] In August 2017, Justice Hines wrote for the unanimous court when it found that the Excessive Bail Clause requires courts to make findings of fact when setting unaffordable bail for an indigent defendant.[5][6]

She now lives in Roxbury.[1][2] In 2017, she retired as she approached the mandatory retirement age of 70.
