    Judicial Excellence Award

    Ten state court judges from across the state of Utah, a Utah Court of Appeals judge, and a Utah Supreme Court Justice will be receiving the Judicial Excellence Award during the Utah State Bar Litigation Section conference in Moab, Utah on November 10, 2017. 
    Honorees are:

    Chief Justice Matthew B. Durrant, Utah Supreme Court
    Judge Gregory K. Orme, Utah Court of Appeals
    Judge Lyle R. Anderson, 7th District
    Judge Samuel A. Chiara, 8th District
    Judge Lynn W. Davis, 4th District
    Judge Ryan M. Harris, 3rd District, now member of Utah Court of Appeals
    Judge Thomas L. Kay, 2nd District
    Judge Derek P. Pullan, 4th District
    Judge Todd M. Shaughnessy, 3rd District
    Presiding Judge W. Brent West, 2nd District
    Judge G. Michael Westfall, 5th District
    Presiding Judge Thomas L. Willmore, 1st District

    The award is given by the Utah Bar’s Litigation Section.  Attorney Heather L. Thuet is the impetus behind the awards which began in 2014.  As Vice-Chair of the Litigation Section, Heather observed that Utah’s exceptional judges were not receiving the recognition that they deserved.   She initiated and has continued to spearhead the program.  Each year, the 2,000+  members of the Litigation Section (the largest section of the Utah Bar) cast their vote.  This award is given to recognize the judges “who promote an orderly and civil litigation process and have demonstrated exemplary character and competence in performing their judicial duties.”   

    The Litigator’s Cup will also be awarded during the event by Michael A. Stahler, the section’s current Chair, to Jess A. Krannich.  The Litigator’s Cup is a large trophy that is passed year to year to a member of the Litigation Section  that has made significant contributions to advance the section’s mission.  Each year, the names of the chair and recipient are added to the Cup.
