Attorney General Tim Fox’s Statement on the Passing of Former Chief Justice Jean Turnage

“I had the honor and privilege of working with Jean Turnage 28 years ago at the beginning of my legal career when I clerked for the Montana Supreme Court during his tenure as chief justice. Chief Justice Turnage epitomized the best of Montana’s public servants as a World War II veteran, a state legislator, and as a distinguished jurist. He encouraged me to run for public office and I was thankful for his assistance as my first campaign treasurer. He was a great friend and mentor to me and many others. Montana will miss his leadership and example, but all Montanans are better off because of all he did in his many years of public service.”
