I am sorry to report that Richard Speidel, one of the major American figures in contracts, commercial law and arbitration of the past forty years, passed away on September 6. At the time of his death he was an emeritus professor at Northwestern University School of Law as well as serving, part of each year, as a Professor of Law at the University of San Diego.
UPDATE: A statement from USD Law Dean Kevin Cole here.
ANOTHER: More from Keith Rowely (Nevada) here.
