In Memoriam: Dan Markel (1972-2014)

Like many, we were stunned to learn of the death of Dan Markel over the weekend.  Dan, a professor at Florida State College of Law, was a co-founder of PrawfsBlawg and a prolific scholar in the area of punishment and retributive justice.  The local ABC News station reports that Dan was shot at his home on Friday and passed away the following day at an area hospital.   

PrawfsBlawg has an on-line memorial for their colleague and friend here

Paul Caron has collected the news reports on this tragedy here
