South Dakota Chief Justice David Gilbertson; advocate for Attorney Thieves


The state of South Dakota presented David E. Gilbertson with a law license in 1975 after he graduated from the University of South Dakota Law School.


Former Gov. Bill Janklowwas duped into appointing Dave as an Associate South Dakota Supreme Court Justice in 1995. Dave didn’t get the appointment because he was the most qualified lawyer and/or judge in South Dakota. He got it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the statewide political hacks.


It should be noted that Dave has had his significant snout firmly implanted in the public trough for the past thirty-one years (1986-2017). Apparently, no self-respecting law firm in the greater Aberdeen area was about to offer Dave a good paying job.


In one matter, Dave presided over an application for the reinstatement of disbarred lawyer Steven Pier of Yankton who was adjudged guilty of stealing at least $46,000 from the estate of a client’s deceased spouse. To review an article dealing with Mr. Pier’s egregious misconduct visit the URL listed at the end of this article.


Unfortunately, it is painfully clear that Chief Justice Gilbertson believes attorney Pier the Thief is constitutionally guaranteed a right to earn a dishonest living practicing law. Towards that end, Gilbertson signed an order reinstating the Thief’s law license.


Thanks to Chief Justice Gilbertson, the good folks of South Dakota have once again had an Attorney Thief foisted upon them.


As we speak (ca. September 2017), Dave continues to sit as the Chief Justice of the South Dakota Supreme Court.
