RIP Al Meyerhoff

I was sorry to see Al Meyerhoff's obituary in the New York Times while trying to catch up on news from half a world away.

Al was a tenacious, courageous but affable litigator who spent his life fighting for the little guy. When I was a junior lawyer I was involved in a Proposition 65 lawsuit opposite Al and the NRDC. I remember Al on conference calls as the scrappy guy who wanted to fight, fight and fight until he won, but never in a mean spirited way. Even though we were opponents I could not help but respect him. Call him a true believer, if you will.

Requiscat in Pace.
