Noem Statement on Passing of Justice Zinter

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Kristi Noem today issued the following statement after the passing of South Dakota Supreme Court Justice Steven Zinter:

“South Dakota has lost a tremendous public servant in the passing of state Supreme Court Justice Steven Zinter. He thoroughly understood and consistently upheld the rule of law, showing both compassion and justice through the judicial process. Bryon and I mourn the loss of a man who heeded the command ‘to act justly and love mercy.’ We pray his family finds comfort in these difficult days.”

    Judge Zinter was a good man.

    THREE SUPREME COURT JUSTICES to appoint by our next governor now. South Dakota has just GOT to vote REPUBLICAN! Our state will never be the same with a ;democrat owned; Sutton in that governor’s seat. I hope voters vote for the ‘office’ and not the campaign.

      only 2–zinter was one of the 2 that was set to retire

      but I do agree we need Noem to fill this immediate vacancy, not Sutton

    Need to wait until after the election based on Republicans position on this issue unless they want to look like hypocrites.

    Growing up in Pierre, I have known Steve for over 40 years. Instead of telling the stories I have to support them, I will just say:

    Yes, Steve was really, really smart.

    Yes, Steve had impeccable integrity.

    Yes, Steve had great courage in how he attacked his injury.

    But, what transcends them all is Steven Zinter was an exceptionally nice man.
