Judge Richard Posner retires

Judge Richard Posner, a fixture on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals for decades, has announced his retirement effective tomorrow, September 2. Judge Posner has been one of the leading American public intellectuals of my lifetime. Even (especially) when I disagreed with his conclusions (legal or otherwise) , I always enjoyed his crisp and compelling explanations for his position.

(h/t Howard Wasserman)
