Deputy Supreme Court Clerk Lorraine Scanson retired Nov. 30 after more than 31 years of service to the North Dakota Court System.
She worked with the District Court of the Southwest Judicial District from Dec. 1,1981, through July 31, 1986, and with the Supreme Court of North Dakota from Aug. 1, 1986, through Nov. 30, 2012.
Scanson was an exemplary employee for the Court. She was the process and procedure "historian" for the office, reminding staff of how a document was processed in the past, and whether that process had changed or evolved.
Scanson was known for rarely taking sick leave, which was evidenced by her having over 4,000 unused sick leave hours at her retirement.
In Dickinson, Scanson served as a secretary for District Judge Maurice Hunke. Prior to moving to Dickinson, she lived in Minot, where she worked at the McGee Law Firm. Scanson is a longtime member of the Western Dakota Association of Legal Assistants.
