CT Superior Court Judge Robert Satter Dies at Age 92

Sadly, we must report the passing of one of Connecticut's most well known judges.  The Governor's office reports that Judge Robert Satter has passed away at age 92.  A well liked Superior Court judge, Satter wrote several books including Doing Justice, A Trial Judge at Work where Satter gave reader's an inside look at what it was like to sit on the bench.  He was also the author of Under the Gold Dome: An Insider’s Look at the Connecticut Legislature.  Our condolences to the Satter family.  

The following is from the office of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy:“Today, Connecticut lost a remarkable man, and a dedicated public servant and jurist.  Judge Satter’s work under the gold dome in the General Assembly, and later on the bench, span over five decades and left a lasting legacy of justice and opportunity for Connecticut residents. We honor his extraordinary work for our state, as well as his service to the nation as a veteran of World War II.   His absence on the Court and in our community will be deeply felt.  Our sympathies, our support and our gratitude for a lifetime of public service go out to his family and friends at this time.”

I have read his book on judging. Good book, and from what I read, I would say, a good judge. I am sorry to hear of his passing. Thanks though for letting us know.
