45 Year Career

Posted: Updated:

A 45 year career was celebrated Saturday in Fargo for Judge Myron H. Bright.

IN 1968 President Lyndon B. Johnson nominated Bright for an open seat on the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.

A memorable time in his past is the work he did on the case of James Dean Walker where he helped free an innocent man.

Bright has served 45 years and is at Senior Status in his career. He's been on the bench for more than 7,000 cases.

"I've tried to do what I can, for what I say, or what I see is justice...it's one of  the things a judge otta do but of course a judge is limited it's not his own idea of justice it's what the law says, and that's what I've tried to do." Myron Bright says with a smile on his face.

Bright is 94 years old and still serving as a Judge in North Dakota.
