I just learned that William Cohen, the C. Wendell and Edith M. Carlsmith Professor of Law Emeritus at Stanford Law School, died last month at age 81. He clerked for Justice Douglas, and taught at Minnesota, UCLA, and then Stanford from 1970-99. He taught Torts, Constitutional Law, and Federal Courts with an exceptional combination of scholarly depth, practical wisdom and good humor. Obit here.
Requiescat in pace, Bill.
