Gov. Shumlin issued the following statement:

"Justice Burgess is a thoughtful judge who, by all accounts, has been an absolute pleasure to work with. During his many years on the bench, he brought a sense of fairness, humility, and humor that endeared him to many. His down-to-earth presence and years of practical experience will be missed.
