|The inscription over the bench reads "Upon the integrity, wisdom and independence of the judiciary depend the sacred rights of free men and women."|
The Court's credo and motto was conceived and formulated by Chief Judge Jule Wimberly Felton. The words "and women" were added in 1992 at the suggestion of the first woman judge on the Court, Dorothy Toth Beasley.
