Judge John Kittredge vows restraint as justice

From the Greenville News:

Kittredge said today that he "was grateful to God for the opportunity" and that he would ensure that he would honor what called the necessary judicial restraint required of a Supreme Court justice.

"The two finest qualities in a judge are humility and restraint," he said. "I believe very strongly in the rule of law and following the law instead of creating it from the bench on a case-by-case basis. I believe adjudicators ajudicate and legislators legislate. I think judges should not cross the line from adjudication to legislation."

Congratulations to Judge Kitteredge on his election.
