We at the University of San Diego have been privileged to count Yale Kamisar as our colleague since 2002. He has taught for us every spring semester since. However, the lure of travel has led Yale to retire fully from teaching; he taught his last class last week. We honored him at a reception on campus Thursday, and our mutual colleague, Don Dripps, delivered a stirring tribute from the vantage of former student, professor of Criminal Procedure, and faculty colleague.

We gave Yale a standing ovation as a way of coercing him to say a few words--our version of poetic justice. We will miss having Yale around, but we will always have fond memories of his time with us. And we will do what we can to get him back from time to time.
