John E. Sprizzo, US District Court Judge

John Sprizzo, a United States District Court Judge in the Southern District of New York, has passed away. I had the privilege of appearing before Judge Sprizzo on numerous occasions. As noted in this NYT article, he was certainly intelligent and had a sense of humor that you don't often see in judges. Oral argument in his courtroom was always an adventure because of those qualities, and he will be missed.
