“Rocket Docket” Judge Retires

When Albert V. Bryan, Jr. ’50, retired after thirty years on the federal bench, he left without fanfare. Yet lawyers who appeared before him in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia are still singing his praises.
Lawyers recognize Bryan as the architect of the “rocket docket,” described in the Washington Post as “a judicial fast-track with a low tolerance for showboating, repetitive questions or lengthy motions.” In addition to earning respect for keeping his docket moving quickly, Bryan is cited in the Almanac of the Federal Judiciary as a “no-nonsense” judge not known to “tolerate any shenanigans” from lawyers. Yet he is also remembered as courteous and fair.

The son of an appellate court judge who graduated from the Law School in 1921, Bryan attended Virginia Military Institute and George Washington University before earning an LL.B. from Virginia in 1950. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve during World War II. A lifelong resident of Alexandria, VA, he maintained a solo law practice until he was named a judge on Virginia’s Sixteenth Judicial Circuit in 1962. He was appointed to the federal bench by President Richard Nixon in 1971.

Bryan is remembered fondly by his law clerks, many of them Virginia graduates who have contributed to a fund established in his honor at the Law School Foundation. Jennifer Rockoff ’00 served as one of Bryan’s last clerks. Currently an associate in the firm Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, she calls Bryan “a truly remarkable man” who is “quiet and modest.” As his clerk, she was amazed at how quickly he would determine what was most important about a civil case. “He was very adept at discerning the key issues and facts,” she said. One of the most important things she learned from Bryan was the value of clear, concise writing. “As I write a brief, I find myself thinking ‘Is that sentence really necessary? What would Judge Bryan say?’”

Bryan’s colleagues on the bench also hold him in high esteem. “He is an absolutely wonderful human being,” said Thomas S. Ellis III, a fellow judge who worked with Bryan for fifteen years. “I miss him every day. In my opinion, he is a champion of the judiciary.”

Alumnus Aids Thousands of Disabled Massachusetts Citizens

McKittrick
Neil McKittrick

When Boston lawyer Neil McKittrick decided to play in a charity basketball tournament, he had no idea that he would soon be representing the group the tournament benefits in court. He certainly never imagined that winning the case for his clients would bring national attention to the challenges they face and important recognition to him and his law firm.

A 1987 Law School graduate and a partner in the firm Hill & Barlow, McKittrick was impressed with the work of ARC Massachusetts, an organization supporting individuals with mental retardation. He learned that many of ARC’s clients had been waiting for years for residential placement or other services guaranteed under the federal Medicaid Act. The services had not been provided because sufficient funds were not allocated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Many of the clients were middle-aged adults who were being cared for at home, often by elderly or infirm parents.
Impressed by the dedication of these families to their disabled children, McKittrick filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of 2,600 people in Massachusetts who had waited as long as ten years for services to which they were entitled. Last summer in Boulet v. Cellucci a federal district judge granted McKittrick’s motion for summary judgment, ruling that the state had failed to provide promised services with reasonable promptness. Late last year, the commonwealth agreed to provide $114 million so that everyone on the waiting list could be served.

“It was a privilege to represent these people,” said McKittrick, who won the American Bar Association Pro Bono Publico Award earlier this year. “This case is a tribute to the persistence and patience of these families, who, by caring for their disabled loved ones in their homes, saved Massachusetts taxpayers millions of dollars.”

McKittrick’s interest in representing the disabled goes back to his Law School days, when he volunteered in a ski program for the disabled held at nearby Massanutten resort. A Dillard fellow who served on the editorial board of the Virginia Law Review, chaired the selection committee for the Student Funded Fellowships program, and earned Order of the Coif honors, he decided to work for Hill & Barlow after clerking for a judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals. The firm counts as billable the hours its associates spend doing pro bono work. “That’s a big reason I ended up where I did,” commented the civil and criminal litigator.

Since McKittrick became involved in Boulet v. Cellucci, he and Hill & Barlow—recipient of the 1993 Massachusetts Bar Association’s Law Firm Pro Bono Award—have taken on more disability cases. He played a critical role in Olmstead v. L.C., a case argued before the Supreme Court of the United States, by filing an amicus curiae brief in support of two women with mental retardation who had been institutionalized against their will by the state of Georgia. He also served as co-counsel on an amicus brief filed with the Supreme Court of the United States on behalf of more than thirty national organizations in PGA Tour, Inc. v. Casey Martin. The brief is in support of Martin, a professional golfer who requires the use of a golf cart due to his disability. McKittrick’s efforts led to victory in both cases.
McKittrick continues to advise lawyers in other states planning to file suits on behalf of the disabled. “I’m grateful to the firm for encouraging me to stay involved in some sort of pro bono work,” he said. “That’s why I wanted to become a lawyer in the first place.”

Alumnus Seeks the Face of Bach

Even when Teri Noel Towe was introduced to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750) as a first grader, he was fascinated by a simple question: What did Bach look like? His childhood fascination with Bach, fueled by numerous biographies and records, nearly each of which contained a markedly different image of the composer, has led the 1973 Law School graduate on a lifelong quest to prove which of the universally accepted portraits of Bach are, in fact, accurate likenesses.

On July 31, 2000, Towe announced that a fragment of a portrait purported to be of Bach is all that remains of a painting that disappeared in 1809 and turned up only recently in the possession of the descendants of a Saxon émigré who brought it to the United States more than 125 years ago. “I am confident that this priceless relic of the greatest composer of all time at long last has been located and identified,” Towe said in a March 21 lecture at Queens College in Flushing, NY.

Why did Towe believe he could make such a bold pronouncement? A graduate of Princeton who earned departmental honors in art history, he is of counsel to the firm Ganz & Hollinger, PC, in New York City, with a practice that includes trusts and estates and intellectual property law. His method of analyzing portrait iconography, informed by the rigors of a Virginia legal education, has resulted in discoveries that have made Bach experts sit up and take notice.

The two Bachs
Towe compared the 1748 Haussman portrait of Bach (left), widely regarded as an accurate representation of the composer, to a recently discovered portrait fragment (right), which he believes dates from about 1733.

Before declaring the authenticity of the portrait fragment, Towe did his homework. He compared the fragment to the acknowledged images of Bach, noting the presence of documented facial features–such as a “protuberant lower jaw” and “drooping eyelids”—that he believes should appear in accurate images. Besides analyzing written descriptions of the Bach portraits known to have existed in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and photographs taken of the composer’s skull following an 1894 exhumation, he also consulted a dentist to inquire about Bach’s underbite and the effects of tooth loss. After completing this initial research, he subjected the portrait fragment, which portrays Bach in his mid to late forties, to a detailed forensic anatomical comparison with the one undisputed portrait from life that is in original condition, a portrait that shows him at age sixty-three.

In evaluating the accuracy of a particular portrait when all the facts are not available and may never be, Towe is not afraid to draw a few conclusions. This is where he believes his legal training stands him in good stead. “I took Evidence and was taught the importance of deductive reasoning,” he said. “Lawyers draw conclusions every day.”

Applying these standards, Towe determined that the portrait fragment in question is part of the Bach portrait, missing for nearly 200 years, which was previously owned by one of the great composer’s former students. In addition to announcing this discovery, Towe has questioned the accuracy and authenticity of several other portraits widely believed to depict his favorite composer, as well as provided what he believes is convincing proof that at least two more controversial portraits are genuine and accurate. He says that his research, which can be found online at www.npj.com/thefaceofbach may be causing some consternation among Bach experts who are using disputed images in books and on recordings.
Although he is not a musician or a musicologist, Towe’s love of music runs deep. He is an avid record collector, producer of historical reissues, reviewer, and two-time winner of the Deems Taylor Award, presented annually by the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) for outstanding print and media coverage of music. He believes he is the only writer to win the Deems Taylor Prize and to place nationally in the Nathan Burkan Competition, sponsored by ASCAP to encourage law students’ interest in copyright law. As a law student, he placed first in the preliminary round at the Law School in 1972, and then fifth in the national competition that followed, for an article on record piracy that is included in 22 Copyright L. Symp. (ASCAP) 1977.

Towe also served as classical music director and president of WTJU, which was then one of two University student radio stations, and as a member of the editorial board of U.Va.’s student newspaper, The Cavalier Daily, for which he reviewed concerts and recordings and wrote the occasional op-ed piece.

When not at Ganz & Hollinger, PC, in New York, Towe pursues his passion for gardening, growing rare antique varieties of spring bulbs and heirloom vegetables at his country retreat in Rhode Island. He continues to work on his study of the Bach portraits there, too. “I am systematically examining all of the images that are alleged to be life portraits or direct copies of life portraits,” he said. Within the next couple of years, Towe hopes to publish the results of his research as an interactive CD-ROM, which he said he considers “an ideal medium for setting out the evidence and conclusions I derive.” He then plans to turn his attention to the portraits of George Frideric Handel and Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. “I’ve discovered that my fascination with forensic portrait iconography extends well beyond the face of Johann Sebastian Bach,” said Towe with a smile.

Memeger Busts the Mob
by Mark F. Bernstein ’89

Zane Memeger
Zane Memeger

Zane Memeger ’91 may have succeeded in putting away eight of Philadelphia’s most notorious mobsters, but don’t ask him the inevitable question: How does the real-life Mafia compare with the fictional version in the HBO TV series, “The Sopranos”? Memeger says he has never seen the show.

If Memeger is unfamiliar with Tony Soprano and Paulie Walnuts, he knows more than he ever wanted to know about the likes of Joseph “Skinny Joey” Merlino, Marty “Noodles” Angelina, Angelo “Buddha” Lutz, and numerous wise guys. As a member of the Organized Crime Strike Force for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Memeger recently completed a grueling sixteen-week trial that ended in racketeering convictions for the leaders of the Philadelphia La Cosa Nostra, who face sentencing in December.

Memeger, 36, has now seen the criminal justice system from both sides. While in the Law School, he served as director of the Post-Conviction Assistance Project’s literacy program for inmates at the Albemarle County jail and later directed PCAP’s habeas corpus program. That work earned him the Robert F. Kennedy Award for Public Service at graduation.

The U.S. attorney’s office is a frequent stop for young lawyers who grow impatient with big-firm practice, and in that sense Memeger’s career path is typical. After graduating from Virginia, he joined the Philadelphia office of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius as an associate in the litigation department, handling commercial defense matters but also working on a few white-collar criminal cases. Eric Kraeutler ’80, the firm’s recruiting partner at the time, recalls Memeger as “extremely detail-oriented” and “second to none in commitment and dedication.”

Like many young associates, Memeger craved more courtroom exposure and applied to the U.S. Attorney’s office after three years in private practice. Told he needed more experience, Memeger spent another year at Morgan, Lewis, much of it in England on a long document production. Shortly after he returned to the United States, he learned that there was an opening and signed on with the Justice Department.

In his first years at the U.S. Attorney’s office, Memeger honed his advocacy skills prosecuting gun possession and drug cases, but jumped at the opportunity to join the Organized Crime Strike Force and an ongoing investigation of the Philadelphia-area La Cosa Nostra. Previous investigations had sent two former mob chieftains to prison. Memeger’s group focused on Merlino, the young challenger to the incumbent boss. When Merlino was indicted in April 2000, Memeger moved to the trial team.
In addition to delivering the government’s opening and closing arguments, Memeger’s most challenging assignment was working with one of their chief cooperating witnesses, a double-turncoat named Ronald Previte, who took payoffs while a Philadelphia police officer before betraying the mob to work undercover for the government as part of a plea agreement.

One of the difficulties of preparing such a witness, Memeger said, was establishing the parameters of their relationship. “While I may be willing to go to bat for you in terms of [seeking a reduction in] your sentence,”

Memeger told Previte, “I’m not going to be hanging out with you. I’m using you. I need information from you. That’s all I want.”

However, Memeger recognized that some believed the government’s reliance on the testimony of turncoats such as Previte weakened its case. He readily acknowledged that the informants were bad men, but reminded the jury that those were the type of men with whom the defendants associated. “While the jurors may not have been happy that we made a deal [with Previte], we wouldn’t have gotten to where we did without it,” he insisted.

Although he had tried almost a dozen small cases before the Merlino trial, it was daunting to go head to head against some of the premiere criminal defense attorneys in the country, including Bruce Cutler, who successfully defended former New York mob boss John Gotti in two trials during the 1980s. Nonetheless, Memeger cut a confident figure in court, smoothly taking Previte through his paces, making extensive use of the numerous surveillance tapes and video recordings, and all the while, he claimed, ignoring muttered threats against himself and his family from the defendants whenever he stepped within earshot.

For four months, Memeger and his co-counsel, Barry Gross, maintained the grueling pace of full days in court followed by late nights preparing for the next day’s proceedings. Previte alone was on the witness stand for almost two weeks. Although some jurors later criticized both sides for the trial’s length, Memeger said it was difficult trying to keep the case short enough to hold the jury’s attention without jeopardizing the government’s ability to prove the defendants’ guilt.

Gross, however, had no doubts about his co-counsel’s performance. “To work with someone for so many years and under that pressure, Zane was perfect,” he said. “It was the best experience working with someone I’ve ever had.”

His three-year commitment to the Strike Force drawing to an end, Memeger says he does not know what he will do next. “I had a feeling, sitting at the counsel table during the closing arguments, that I could do this for the rest of my life,” he commented. On the other hand, as he sees classmates and friends making partner, the lure of private practice, if only from a financial standpoint, is strong. Furthermore, Memeger, his wife, Laura, an urban planner, and their two-and-a-half-year-old son, Max, are expecting another child this winter.

Though some described the Merlino verdict as a disappointment because the jury rejected the more serious murder and drug trafficking counts while convicting the defendants of bookmaking and racketeering, Memeger sees it differently.

“The system worked,” he said philosophically. “And at the end of the day, I’m going home to my family and they’re not.”

Carrying a Pump

Capturing Life on the Streets:
Andrew Glickman, Street Photographer

Andrew Glickman is a street photographer. He carries his camera wherever he goes, anonymously documenting what he sees on the street. He continues a century-long tradition of street photography, exemplified by Eugène Atget’s turn-of-the- century Paris scenes; Henri Cartier-Bresson’s
enigmatic landscapes; and Joel Meyerowitz’s shots of chaotic city-street action. But Glickman has a parallel professional identity. A 1991 graduate of the Law School, he is a senior special counsel in the Office of the General Counsel at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in Washington, D.C..

Glickman describes maintaining these two parts of his life as a “challenging balance,” although he admits that his job as an advisor at the SEC
provides him with the flexibility to devote time to his art. “Its quite different from what many people do in private practice,” he explained. “I’m essentially a lawyer’s lawyer. I work closely with the enforcement and regulatory staffs while they prepare recommendations for consideration by the commission. In looking over the work of other attorneys, I’m supposed to think through any legal or policy issues that might arise before advising the commission as to our office’s views. My job is often very academic in nature.”

Glickman’s interest in photography dates back to his childhood. Throughout college at U.Va., he snapped landscapes, portraits, and assorted assignments for The Cavalier Daily. When he returned to Charlottesville in 1988 to attend law school, his interest in photography did not wane. Glickman not only made Law Review, he also made the time to make more pictures.

After joining the SEC in 1991, Glickman continued to dedicate time and energy to his passion for photography. A 1995 visit to Chicago opened his eyes to a new world. Visiting an exhibit at the Art Institute, Glickman came face-to-face with Joel Meyerowitz’s street photography from the 1960s and 1970s. “I was stunned,” he recalled. “Here were some of the most intriguing photographs I had ever seen. When I learned a month later that Meyerowitz offered a workshop on street and landscape photography in Tuscany, I wanted to be part of it.”

Two weeks in Meyerowitz’s workshop merely whetted Glickman’s appetite for more. Over the next three summers, he served as one of Meyerowitz’s assistants in Tuscany. In 1997, he took two years off to focus on his art, studying twice with noted photographer Mary Ellen Mark.

By the time he returned to the law, Glickman had received important recognition for his art. Two of his photographs were included in an exhibit of street photography at U.Va.’s Bayly Art Museum in 1999. One received first prize in a competition held by the Santa Fe Center for the Visual Arts. Eight were purchased by the Washington, D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities for display in public buildings.

Recently, Glickman received more good news. One of his photographs was published in the new edition of Bystander: A History of Street Photography (Bulfinch Press, Little Brown & Co., 2001) a book widely regarded as the bible of street photography. Two others, one from Tuscany and another from Mexico, will be part of an exhibit of street photography this fall and winter at—where else?—Chicago’s Art Institute.

The artist remains focused on his work in the streets. “My photography is about the recognition of beauty, dignity, and poetry in the ordinary,” he explained. “On the street, I’m most interested in the moments of daily life that speak to the human condition. My images are about how a look, a gesture, or a relationship between people and objects can communicate with us. Spending time noticing the things around me helps me enjoy life more.” Portfolios of Glickman’s work can be seen at the Andrew Smith Gallery in Santa Fe, NM.
