My former students will likely remember Jim Neal, usually one of their favorite participants in the TV show Truth on Trial, an episode of the PBS series Ethics in America. Sadly, I must report that he passed away a few days ago. Here is a short article on his long successful career. Last year, he was recognized by the ABA Journal as one of the most influential lawyers over 70. See "Lions of the Trial Bar: 7 over 70." He was 81. For more go here, here, and here.
Thanks to the Legal Ethics Forum for the news.
