The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination late last week of Paul Reiber to the Vermont Supreme Court. Reiber’s nomination goes to the full Senate this week. During his testimony to the committee, the former Rutland trial attorney was asked about his thoughts on judicial activism and judicial restraint. Today, in “Word for Word” we bring you an excerpt from that hearing. (To hear Reiber’s comments, click on the Listen” icon.)
“Word for Word” is an occasional feature of VPR in which we broadcast extended comments by Vermont newsmakers. Today’s “Word for Word” was produced by Patti Daniels.
