Stone Pigman To Sponsor the 2009 John Minor Wisdom Awards Luncheon
Stone Pigman is sponsoring the American Bar Association's Section of Litigation's 2009 John Minor Wisdom Awards Luncheon. Established by the American Bar Association Section of Litigation in 1990, the award is named for Judge John Minor Wisdom, 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 to receive the award that bears his name. The recipients of the Wisdom Awards have made important contributions to the equality of justice in their communities, ensuring that the legal system is open and available to all. "The Wisdom Award recipients' extraordinary contributions to public service and professionalism are worthy reflections of the career of our firm's founder and the namesake for the awards, John Minor Wisdom," said Jay Gulotta, chair of Stone Pigman's Litigation Section. Stone Pigman congratulates the recipients of the awards, whose achievements ennoble the legal profession.
