Burgess To Retire From Vt. Supreme Court
Justice Brian L. Burgess is retiring from the Vermont Supreme Court.
Burgess announced Tuesday that he will step down on Aug. 1.
Burgess, a former trial court judge and assistant attorney general, was appointed associate justice to the Vermont Supreme Court in 2005.
Chief Justice Paul Reiber says Justice Burgess is a friend and respected colleague who will be missed, not only for his intellect and common sense, but also for his thoughtful, deliberative approach to decision-making and his wry sense of humor.
