We were saddened by the death last week of our Louisville colleague, E. Michael Runner, a former AAML Fellow.
Mike was opposing counsel in an alienation of affection case early in my career, a tort which has, thankfully, since been abolished in Kentucky. It was quite a circus and Mike did a masterful job. Judge John W. Potter presided. While the jury was deliberating, Judge Potter handed us Alternate Jury Instructions. If you wonder why I saved these instructions all these years, you will just have to download and read them!
Condolences to Mike's wife, Connie, and to his good friend and law partner, Keith Laurin.
