A Legend Passes


University of Chicago Professor David P. Currie (1936 – 2007) passed away yesterday.  He was, without a doubt, the finest Constitutional Law professor in the country, and one of the most remarkable scholars from whom I had the distinct honor and privilege to take classes.  His Constitution in the Supreme Court: The First Hundred Years  and The Second Hundred Years stand as testaments to his remarkable contribution to the study of law.  He will be missed.
