MONTGOMERY – Augusta S. Dowd (White Arnold & Dowd P.C.), president of the Alabama State Bar, issued the following statement on the death of former Alabama Supreme Court Justice and bar member Janie L. Shores:

“Justice Shores was an outstanding, well-respected Alabama jurist who blazed the trail for so many during her career. We honor her many achievements through the Janie L. Shores scholarship awarded annually by the Women’s Section of the Alabama State Bar to support a female resident of Alabama attending an Alabama law school. The scholarship established in 2006 will continue her legacy through the careers and professional achievements of the recipients. We at the bar are saddened by her passing and mourn her loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with her daughter, Laura Shores, and the rest of the family.”
