Justice Charles McDevitt

Joan Cartan-Hansen speaks with Judge Charles McDevitt about his decision to step down from his position on the Idaho Supreme Court. McDevitt says when he was appointed in 1989 he had a set list of things he wanted to accomplish during his time on the bench, including: modernizing the court, increasing court security, and advocating for a more open court system. Since he feels those goals have been accomplished, it is time to pass the torch to someone who can "take the court into the next century."
