It is with profound sadness that I report the death of my teacher, mentor, and friend, Jeffrey O'Connell. The longtime University of Virginia Law professor co-authored the work that led to no-fault automobile insurance and created an "early offers" proposal, a version of which was passed into law in New Hampshire last year. He was a phenomenal classroom teacher and a good man. He will be missed.
I will likely post some further thoughts about Jeffrey later in the week.
