2nd Annual Transparent Courthouse® Award Dinner

October 22, 2008

In October 2008, a distinguished group of judges, attorneys, and business leaders gathered to recognize the extraordinary work of Utah Supreme Court Chief Justice Christine M. Durham, who was honored for her achievements in building a more responsive and effective court system.

New York Times editorial board member and guest speaker Dorothy Samuels addressed the audience about the importance of an unbiased judiciary and the corrosive effects of judicial elections on public trust.

This yearly event and award is now known as the Rebuilding Justice Award Dinner.
