What's being said

  • Ravi Batra

    Mr. Justice Israel "Russ" Rubin was a Prince of the Law.

    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.
