For Vermont Only
MONTPELIER – April 12, 2016 – Gov. Peter Shumlin has ordered flags statewide to fly at half-staff in honor of former Vermont Chief Justice Fred Allen, who passed away this weekend. The Governor has ordered flags lowered tomorrow at sunrise through Friday at sunset. The Governor issued the following statement.
“I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former Chief Justice Fred Allen. Since being appointed to the Court by Governor Snelling in 1984, Chief Allen served the State of Vermont with distinction. He provided firm leadership, critical stability, and a fresh perspective to our Supreme Court over his twelve years of service. ‘Fred,’ as his colleagues knew him, was known both for his strong work ethic and his deep sense of collegiality. He will be remembered as one of Vermont’s most respected jurists, outstanding trial lawyers, and as an accomplished Burlington son. My thoughts are with his family, friends, and former colleagues.”
