The DJ reports the death at age 84 of Judge/Justice Robert Timlin in Central District Judge Known for Being Fair, Kind. President Clinton nominated him to the Central District in 1994 (and he took senior status in 2005). But before that he was Justice Timlin on the Court of Appeal (4th Dist. Div. 2, from 1990 to 1994).
Also of appellate note, yesterday's DJ profiled Judge Pregerson -- Dean Pregerson CD Cal, that is.
