Stone Pigman Sponsors John Minor Wisdom Awards
Stone Pigman congratulates Larry Hammond and Perkins Coie, LLP on receiving the 2013 John Minor Wisdom Public Service and Professionalism Awards. The Award was established by the American Bar Association Section of Litigation in 1990 and is named for Judge John Minor Wisdom. Judge Wisdom was a founding member of Stone Pigman, a scholar and jurist whose tenure on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit is best known for recognition of constitutional rights of all citizens. Judge Wisdom's decisions establishing the right to vote, implementing equal educational opportunities and strengthening the right of effective counsel are marked by fairness and compassion. Each year the ABA's Section of Litigation honors Judge Wisdom through the selection of outstanding individuals and firms that have made important contributions to the quality of justice in their community, ensuring that the legal system is open and available to all. Stone Pigman has been privileged to sponsor the Awards Luncheon for the past several years.
In April, 2012 the ABA published an interview with Judge Wisdom in recognition of his illustrious career and the award named in his honor. Click here to view the video.
