Fourth Circuit Judge M. Blane Michael, who sat in West Virginia, died last Friday. He was 68. He had been appointed to the bench by President Clinton in 1993.
Matt Bodie shares thoughts about Judge Michael for whom he clerked for in 1996-97.
A Judge Michael clerkship launched a number of careers in law teaching. Other former Michael clerks in the academy include Jonathan Witmer-Rich, John Taylor, Vic Fleischer, Sean Andrussier, Caroline Mala Corbin and Alex Kreit.
