OKLAHOMA CITY – House Speaker Chris Benge issued the following statement today in response to the death of Oklahoma Supreme Court Justice Marian Opala.   "Justice Opala's life proved the continuing reality of the American Dream. As an immigrant to the United States, he rose to the highest ranks of our legal profession. That he did so in Oklahoma is a source of great pride for our state.
