2018 State of the Judiciary 

Chief Justice Matthew Durrant spoke to House members about how proud he is of the fact that justice in Utah is not hidden away, but “shines as a bright beacon.” He mentioned how court participants recognize that they are treated with respect and fairness. He thanked the Legislature for their efforts to address homelessness, and Speaker Hughes specifically for his work on Operation Rio Grande.

He also noted that the justices respect legislators and the laws they implement. “We understand our role, which is to interpret and enforce the law that you write, as you write it,” said Justice Durrant.
