Prof. Richard Cole

I am sad to report that TortsProf Richard Cole, of my institution (Western New England) passed away over the weekend.  Dick began teaching at the School of Law in 1976, and, over the years, taught Torts, Toxic Torts, and various other courses related to civil litigation.  A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Michigan Law School, Dick also taught at Detroit College of Law and visited at Oxford.

I join Dean Gaudio, as do all of my colleagues, in grieving the loss of a colleague and friend.  Dick was a gentle, caring, and inquisitive professor and colleague, and he touched countless lives.

I remember Prof. Cole well, and with much fondness. I took his torts course back in the fall of 1979. (Wow, am I that old???).

I share your grief.
