Submissions are due by end of day on Friday, August 3rd.

To assist you in crafting your questions, please note the Justice’s policy on questions:
“The Justice appreciates that audiences would like her to comment on current issues, however, she believes that the public will lose confidence in the Judiciary if Justices opine on cases or issues before they are heard at the Court.  The Justice does not answer questions on issues that may come before the Court, pending cases, statutes, or proposed legislation.  Furthermore, she does not express her views on the conduct and opinions of others and she will not pick among people as her role models or favorites.  Lastly, the Justice will not explain or define her opinions in any way.”
