Max Gors, former South Dakota judge, dies

Posted: Updated:


Max Gors -- one of South Dakota's prominent legal figures -- has died.

Gors served the state in a number of roles throughout the years...including acting justice on the state supreme court.  He was most recently the Hughes County State's Attorney.  But he may be most remembered for the custody battle of Timmie Meldrum.  After a court case that dragged on for years and made national headlines, Gors left it up to the teen to decide whether to stay with his step-dad in Winner, or move to out of state with his biological dad.  

Gors was 67.
