General District Judge Norman deVere “Dev” Morrison retired yesterday after 24 years on the bench.
Before his judicial appointment in 1985, Judge Morrison served as the Berryville town attorney and as a substitute judge. During his career, he has sat in every court in the 26th Judicial Circuit, but mainly ruled over cases in Clarke and Shenandoah counties and Winchester.
Judge Morrison tells The Northern Virginia Daily that he wants to be remembered as someone who made a positive difference in people’s lives.
Amy Tisinger was sworn in Monday to replace Judge Morrison on the general district bench.
