Passages: Former state Supreme Court Justice Robert Utter

Washington Supreme Court Justice Robert Utter, who resigned from the high court in 1995 to protest what he saw as unequal application of justice in death penalty cases, died Wednesday at age 84.

Utter was a 23-year veteran of the high court. He was also active in launching the Seattle chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters in 1958. It was the state's first. After retiring from the Supreme Court in 1995, he worked with his wife, Betty, in Rwanda on a University of Washington project to find justice after genocide.

A public memorial service will be held Nov. 8 at South Puget Sound Community College. The Olympian has more on his life and legacy.
