I just came across the essays dedicated to the memory of Richard Nagareda in the Vanderbilt Law Review. It was extraodinarily sad to read the loving tributes to Richard. I knew him in a very limited way. That said, I found the pictures painted of him in the essays to be right on: smart, caring, a great mentor, and a bold thinker. From a professional perspective (and that is obviously not the most important thing in life), it was at once devastating and a fitting tribute to see his work featured as the basis for the Supreme Court's decision in Wal-Mart v. Dukes. He continues to be missed.
