U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., issued the following statement on the passing of U.S. District Court Judge Clarence Brimmer.

Diana and I were so saddened to hear about the passing of Judge Brimmer. He will be missed. He has been a joy to visit and learn from. I have always appreciated his knowledge of the law and the way he blended that with common sense, able to get to the heart of the matter. He made some decisions in court cases involving the federal government and Gillette while I was mayor that made a difference for our community. He kept working, all the while helping to make Wyoming and our country a better place.
