My Mentor Is Gone

Awhile back I wrote about my mentor. The Honorable Judge Arthur E. Wallace of the Kern County Superior Court.

He was the judge who most helped me cut my chops in felony trial work.

And he mentored me through some very tough times in my life.

He became a life long friend.

I can truly say that now. He died last night after a 4 year battle with pancreatic cancer.

To say that I will miss him is an understatement.

He never met Dan but I am sure that they will have some great intellectual arguments where they are now.

I wish I could listen in.
