Passing of Bill Robinson...The bar world mourned the loss last week of a true lawyer-leader with the passing of Wm T. (Bill) Robinson III. Bill served as the Kentucky Bar President (1985-86); ABA President (2011-12); and held numerous offices at the local, state and national level. The ABA paid tribute to Bill last week. His obituary can be found here, and, because Bill loved gifts that impact lives now and long term, in lieu of flowers, donations are being accepted to Redwood, an organization dedicated to guiding children and adults with severe and multiple disabilities to achieve independence.
