Guam - After spending more than eleven years on the bench, Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson will put down her gavel and hang her gown at the end of March. Chief Justice F. Philip Carbullido announced Barrett-Anderson's retirement and initiated the process to certify a judicial vacancy and call for an appointment of a successor. 

Chief Justice Carbullido noted, "Barrett-Anderson has made a remarkable contribution to improve and modernize Guam's judicial system and has been at the forefront of the therapeutic court approach to addressing alcohol and substance abuse and the social problems behind the crimes committed in our community." Barrett-Anderson is credited with the creation of the Driving While Influenced Court and the rules of procedure and practice in the field of domestic violence. 

The graduate of Academy of Our Lady of Guam was a two-term senator and was also a former attorney general.  Her last day on the job is March 30.
