My dear friend and colleague, John Nagle, passed from this life over the weekend. He was a great teacher and legal scholar, and also -- and more importantly -- a deeply good, generous person. (I recommend this wonderful reflection, by his former student, Derek Muller. Here is something I did at Prawfsblawg. And, here is the announcement on Notre Dame Law School's page.)
MOJ readers might remember the project, "Catholics and Evangelicals Together on Law." John was one of the signatories.
John wrote and taught about so many things, it's not possible to do justice to his academic work (let alone his personal gifts) here. If you haven't read his stuff before, take a look.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
