FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A fixture of Kentucky's Supreme Court for 25 years is retiring.

Susan Stokley Clary, the clerk of the Supreme Court, will retire Feb. 1.

Clary has been clerk for three chief justices and is responsible for the custody, control and storage of all Supreme Court records. The clerk is also court administrator and general counsel for the court, and calls Supreme Court proceedings to order in the chamber.

Chief Justice John Minton said Clary is synonymous with the state's highest court.

“She has served the Judicial Branch with the utmost professionalism and dedication,” Minton said.

Clary was named clerk in 1995, and previously served as general counsel and court administrator for the Supreme Court.
