Prof. Craig Bradley, R.I.P.

I learned today the sad news that Prof. Craig Bradley (Indiana University-Bloomington) died yesterday.  I met Prof. Bradley, when I was clerking, in 1997 -- he was one of then-Associate Justice Rehnquist's law clerks in the mid-1970s (and later edited a volume of essays called "The Rehnquist Legacy").  He was -- from the beginning and always -- helpful, supportive, and kind.  For years, Craig wrote and published helpful and concise analyses of the Court's Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure decisions for Trial magazine (here is an example) and he gave me lots of good advice when I first started teaching in those areas. 

You can go here, to the IU website, and read and post remembrances of Craig.  R.I.P.

I am deeply saddened to hear about this. Craig had e-mail around his most recent Trial Magazine column just 6 days ago. I always enjoyed his work, and it was rightly influential. Among other things, Craig was the leading scholar on comparative search and seizure law. For those interested in becoming more familiar with his work, you can see his CV here: http://info.law.indiana.edu/pub/libs/images/usr/11942_h.pdf
