Justice Imber to Retire from the Arkansas Supreme Court at the End of 2009

Arkansas Business reports that Justice Imber plans to retire at the end of the year.

Gov. Mike Beebe on Thursday announced that Imber plans to retire on Jan. 1, one year before her term on the court ends. Beebe’s office said she informed him of the decision Wednesday and said she cited personal reasons and a wish to pursue new service opportunities.

Beebe did not say who he would appoint to serve the final year of Imber’s term. The governor praised her as a “thoughtful” judge. Imber has served on the court since 1997.
