 APRIL 30, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Associate Justice Greg G. Guidry took a ceremonial oath of office as Supreme Court justice today in the courtroom where he has officially presided, representing the First Louisiana Supreme Court District, since January.


“I champion our system of justice and applaud all of the hard working judges and attorneys who make it the best the world has to offer," Justice Guidry said in his remarks to a gathering of family, friends and fellow members of the bar.


The investiture program commenced with Chief Justice Catherine D. “Kitty” Kimball’s opening remarks; a welcome by Christine Remy, Vice President of the Jefferson Bar Association; the Pledge of Allegiance led by Patrick Guidry and Boy Scout Pack 55 of Holy Name of Jesus School; and, a musical interlude provided by Louisiana Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal Judge Walter J. Rothschild.


U.S. Attorney Jim Letten provided the introduction of Justice Guidry, sharing his knowledge of Guidry as a friend and former co-worker at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of Louisiana, where they worked together as Assistant U.S. Attorneys from 1990 - 2000. The oath was administered by former Chief Justice Pascal F. Calogero, Jr., who retired after 36 years of service in December 2008, and whose seat on the Supreme Court bench was filled by the election of Justice Guidry. In a symbolic gesture on behalf of the Jefferson Bar Association, President-Elect Lorraine P. McInnis presented Guidry with a gavel from the organization.
