Utah Supreme Court Justice, and former Chief Justice, Christine M. Durham submitted a letter of resignation to Governor Gary R. Herbert Tuesday stating she will retire this November.
Durham served 35 years on the Supreme Court bench.
“We are deeply grateful for Justice Christine Durham’s extraordinary service to the Utah Supreme Court and the citizens of Utah,” said Utah Supreme Court Chief Justice Matthew B. Durrant in a prepared statement. “She is a brilliant jurist, a wonderful colleague, and a truly remarkable human being. Justice Durham has been an inspiration not only to lawyers and judges here in Utah, but nationally as well. I cannot overstate just how profoundly her contributions have helped to build a court system that has come to be recognized as a national model.”
