Elaine,

I was saddened to learn of Tom's passing. He taught me a lot even though we never practiced law together. As a law clerk to Judge Carl Muecke in 1969 I had the privilege of watching Tom provide outstanding representation to impoverished federal criminal defendants time after time. He was later an outstanding judge in his own right.

He also had a wicked drive to the basket in YMCA noon basketball pickup games.

In short, he was a mensch. He will be sorely missed.

So sorry to hear this sad news. Judge O'Toole was simply THE BEST. He treated everyone (including staff) in the judicial process with respect. He was a no-nonsense kind of guy. As a criminal manager, I could go to him for questions big and small, and he would ALWAYS make sure that my questions were answered.
