MetNews article: Presiding Justice Turner Dies

Today's MetNews presents C.A. Presiding Justice Turner Dies, noting:
  • he "put in unusually long hour hours, and even had work brought to him at his home when he stopped going to the office at the start of this month, as he weakened, in the final stages of liver cancer ...."
  • The Chief said, "He was a force of nature in his approach to the law, his work ethic, with a real zest for live. I will always remember his razor wit, his collegiality, and his optimism."
  • He recently told friends, "I'm not afraid of dying -- I just can't bear the thought of not being a member of the Court of Appeal."
The article has great pictures and many other reminiscences from judges and practitioners.
