It has only just come to my attention that my former colleague and longtime faculty member at the University of Texas School of Law, David W. Robertson, passed away at the end of last year. A leading authority on admiralty law--his 1970 Admiralty and Federalism is widely cited by the courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court--he was also a scholar of tort law, as well as a very popular teacher. The UT memorial notice is here.
(Thanks to Dennis Hutchinson for calling Professor Robertson's passing to my attention.)
