I sat down with Judge Rya Zobel on a sunny afternoon in August to talk to her about her first 35 years on the bench. The impetus for the interview was the fact that she had recently taken senior status. With her usual dynamism, however, the judge informed me that she has not reduced her caseload despite the change in status. So this was not a pre-retirement interview, but rather an opportunity to ask her to look back and share some of her thoughts about her court, the cases that have come before her, and (once a clerk, always a clerk) for her advice.
