Anyone lucky enough to have had him in their life, at any level, were enriched by his generosity of spirit and presence. I remember him as a man who gave me much strength and affection, and caused me to love the courts and the judiciary in a very personal way, and him in particular. He was loved by all. He will be missed by all. He enhanced public confidence in the judiciary. A great judge; a great New Yorker; a great American.Dated: 5/28/14/s/Ravi Batra Comments are not moderated.
