Senior U.S. District Court Judge J. Owen Forrester ran his courtroom by the rule book. He believed in courtesy and demanded professionalism, colleagues said. "He called them like he saw them in the courtroom," Atlanta criminal defense attorney Bill Morrison said. "He was famous in criminal cases when you would be arguing a point and he agreed with you or took a position that was more favorable than you were advocating but you just kept on talking about it. He would sometimes stop the proceeding and say, 'Listen, are you trying to talk me out of this position that I've already taken?' He did that with great humor." Read the news obituary
