The 2010 Morton A. Brody Distinguished Judicial Service Award was won by the Honorable Nancy Gertner, U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Massachusetts. A ceremony was planned for April 11, when an address by Gertner was to follow a panel discussion on “The Evolving Impact of Technology on Law and the Courts.”
Before her appointment to the federal court, in 1994, Judge Gertner was a defense and civil rights lawyer in Boston who litigated significant cases affecting reproductive rights, employment discrimination against women, and desegregation of Boston’s public schools. As a judge she has decided cases where racial profiling, employment discrimination, and fair housing were at issue. The Brody Award honors an outstanding federal or state judge who embodies integrity, compassion, humanity, and judicial craftsmanship.
