OKLAHOMA CITY – On Thursday, Governor Brad Henry ordered that all flags on state property be flown at half-staff on Monday, October 18, in honor of Oklahoma Supreme Court Justice Marian Opala.

Opala died October 11. In accordance with state law, the flags will fly at half-staff on the day of Justice Opala's funeral.
