Judge Myron H. Bright, a senior judge on the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, celebrates his 40th anniversary on the 8th Circuit bench this Saturday. Bright continues his judging, having served with both the 8th and 9th Circuits over the past year. He also was a jurist-in-residence at law schools in Hawaii and North Dakota and served as a Rule of Law emissary for the U.S. State Department, meeting with judicial representatives from Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
Bright has already celebrated his milestone. His former law clerks, most of them practicing lawyers and law school professors, honored Judge Bright at a 40th anniversary celebration in Minneapolis on July 25-27.
Minnesota Lawyer blog sends its best wishes out to Bright, who hails from Eveleth and is a graduate of the University of Minnesota. Both the man and the career are truly remarkable. We thank Bright for four decades of steadfast service.
