Louis Pollak (1922-2012)
From the federal courthouse comes the very sad news that Senior District Court Judge Louis Pollak has died. Judge Pollak, a jurisprudential giant, mentor to many, and former dean of both Yale and Penn Law Schools, served on the bench from 1978 until his death. He will be missed.
(Update: The Inquirer’s brief obituary is here, though obviously there is much more that could and will be said.)
