Resolution: Name federal courthouse after George Sutherland
SALT LAKE CITY — A resolution urging Washington to name the new federal courthouse after George Sutherland, the only Utahn to ever serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, was approved Tuesday by the House Judiciary Committee.
HJR9, sponsored by Rep. Johnny Anderson, R-Taylorsville, now goes to the House.
Sutherland, who also served as a member of the Utah Senate and the U.S. Congress and Senate, was lauded in the resolution for setting an unsurpassed example "of humility and integrity in public service" before his death in 1942.
Among Sutherland's many accomplishments cited in the resolution were his successful defense of another Utah senator, Reed Smoot, when the Senate considered expelling Smoot because of his religious and alleged polygamous practices.
