The woman who is just the fourth clerk of the North Dakota Supreme Court is retiring at the end of the year.

Penny Miller took the position July 1, 1992, and has seen the office and the state's court system through many changes. She’s worked with 14 justices, taken the office from a “purely paper world” to near paperless, and been part of the unification of the court system, which went from a county-based system to judicial districts.

Each day is different, and the judicial branch is always changing, according to Miller.

“That's what makes the job one of those jobs you don’t tire of, because you never get in a rut,” she said.
