United States Circuit Judge Guido Calabresi of New Haven, Conn., was chosen as the inaugural recipient of the Morton A. Brody Distinguished Judicial Service Award, to be presented April 18. Calabresi also will receive an honorary doctor of laws degree and will deliver a public lecture in Given Auditorium.
The Brody Award was established to recognize a federal or state judge who demonstrates the qualities of integrity, compassion, humanity and judicial excellence--in memory of the Honorable Morton Brody, a U.S. District Court judge who passed away in March 2000. Brody, a long-time Waterville resident, taught courses at Colby on the judicial system, was the husband of Associate Dean of Admissions Judith Brody '58 and was long a friend of the College.
Calabresi was born in Italy and in 1939, at age 6, immigrated to the United States with his family to escape fascism. Prior to his appointment in 1994 as U.S. Circuit Court Judge for the Second Circuit, he was dean and Sterling Professor at the Yale Law School, where he continues to serve as a member of the faculty. He earned a B.S. and an LL.B. degree at Yale as well as a B.A.and an M.A. (as a Rhodes Scholar) at Oxford University. He clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black in 1958-59 before returning to Yale to teach. He has written four influential books.
The Brody Award selection committee is chaired by Brock Hornby, chief judge of the Federal District Court in Maine, and includes distinguished active and retired judges, lawyers, law professors, representatives of the College and a member of the Brody family.
