This news item is both sad and rather sudden. On June 30, David Getches stepped down after a successful eight year run as dean of the University of Colorado School of Law. Yesterday, he passed away after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. He had intended to return to teaching as the Raphael J. Moses Professor of Natural Resources Law. He joined the Colorado faculty in 1979 and was 68 years old.
