Greg Coleman, R.I.P.

I learned of Greg’s death, noted by John below, early this evening. John is right on all accounts about Greg as a superb lawyer and person.

Greg was a co-clerk of mine with Judge Edith Jones, 1992-93. We kept in touch occasionally over the years, as I watched his rise in legal circles in Texas and beyond. There is no doubt he was headed for much more success.  We had our differences on some issues, and found ourselves on opposite sides at a U.S. Senate hearing in 2003 on the subject of DOMA.  He was a formidable intellectual presence. He was also never anything less than decent, respectful, and humane. I had enormous respect for him, as did anyone who knew him. I wish the best for his sons, wife, and the rest of his family.
