Attorney General Reyes Statement on the Passing of Judge Dee Benson

December 1, 2020

Today, Attorney General Sean D. Reyes released the following statement regarding the passing of U.S. District Judge Dee Benson:

“The Utah AG’s Office mourns the passing of Judge Dee Benson. He was a gentleman and a jurist, a humanitarian with a great sense of humor.

“He had a brilliant mind and bigger heart. Judge Benson was a friend, mentor and example to many of us in the AG’s Office and will be deeply missed.

“On a personal level, the Judge was always kind and gracious and I learned from listening to him. Particularly, I enjoyed our chats in the garden of Hal Christensen’s backyard as we both soaked up Hal’s Samurai wisdom. My prayers and condolences go out to his family. Utah has lost a great one.”
