ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the life and works of Judge Leon Lazer, who was also a member of the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Second Department. He cites his experience in meeting with the lawyer, who was considered as the intellectual leader of the court and whose opinions were the most scholarly and most persuasive. However, the author expresses disappointment on how the lawyer became a victim in the judicial election system and process that unseats many fine judges.
