ND Supreme Court Justice Maring Retires

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota Supreme Court Justice Mary Maring is retiring.

A party was held in her honor at the Heritage Center today.

Justice Maring was appointed to the Supreme Court by former Governor Ed Schafer in 1996.

"I just feel that I have been so lucky to work with the fine people that I worked with. All of the judges that I worked with, very intelligent, dedicated people that we have in ND in our judicial system," Justice Maring said. "We are very lucky to have them, and I was lucky to be able to work with people like that."

Now that she's retired, Maring says she plans to focus on something she's wanted to do for years.

"I'm going to paint. I have really wanted to paint since I've been in high school and not paint necessarily for anyone else but for my own enjoyment," Justice Maring said.

Maring will now be a surrogate judge which means she will sit in on cases if another Justice is unavailable.
