I am very sorry to report the untimely death of one of the great minds in mass tort litigation, Richard Nagareda. According to the Vanderbilt notice, Professor Nagareda died suddenly at his home on Friday October 8, 2010. Vanderbilt released the following statement:
“Richard was a personal friend as well as an esteemed colleague, and those of us who were fortunate enough to know him and work with him for the past several years are devastated by his death,” Dean Chris Guthrie said. “The legal academy has lost a gifted scholar, and our students an extremely talented teacher. Our faculty members have lost a good friend and exemplary colleague, and his family a beloved husband, father and son."
We were lucky to have Professor Nagareda guest blog here at TortsProf last spring. His guest blog piece explored "Developments in the Resolution of Mass Torts: The New Face of Client Consent."
