2/4 Presiding Justice Norman Epstein announced his engagement to retired Butte Superior Court Judge Ann Rutherford. No wedding date has been set.
According to the Met News, "The engagement became public when MetNews Editor/Co-Publisher Roger M. Grace told attendees at this newspaper’s 22nd annual 'Person of the Year' Dinner that he had 'some very delightful news,' relating the betrothal. Warm applause greeted the announcement, made with the permission of Epstein, who was present." (h/t Ben Shatz)
