McAnulty Remembered At Louisville Church

An overflow crowd gathered at a Louisville church on Aug. 27 where a former Kentucky Supreme Court justice was remembered in prayer, song and eulogy.

William E. McAnulty Jr. was remembered as a fun-loving man, who "broke down barriers" as family and friends paid tribute to Kentucky's first black supreme court justice.

Those attending the service at Highland Presbyterian Church included Kentucky Governor Ernie Fletcher, Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson and McAnulty's fellow judges.

Fifty-nine-year-old McAnulty died of cancer on Aug. 23, two weeks after stepping down from the high court.

Fletcher appointed McAnulty to the supreme court last summer, then won election to a full term in November. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
