Leroy S. Merrifield, the Lobingier Professor Emeritus of Jurisprudence and Comparative Law at George Washington University, passed away on September 19th at the age of 90. Although Merrifield was a labor scholar, he also taught Torts. In addition, Merrifield was the author of the Prosser Notebook. I am grateful to Merrifield for patiently answering my questions about the notebook, and my sympathy goes out to his family.
