  MARCH 29, 2001


Justice Harry Lemmon has announced that he will retire from the Supreme Court of Louisiana, effective May 16, 2001, after twenty-one years of service on the court.

Justice Lemmon graduated with honors from Loyola University School of Law and practiced law in St. Charles Parish. He was elected to the Court of Appeal, Fourth Circuit, in 1970, and to the Supreme Court in 1980, and reelected twice without opposition.

For over twenty years, Justice Lemmon has been the Chair of the Board of Governors of the Louisiana Judicial College, which provides continuing legal education for all Louisiana judges in seminars, bench books, newsletters and other publications. He served as a adjunct professor of law at Loyola Law School and has taught courses at Louisiana State University Law Center and Tulane School of Law. He has served on the Visiting Committee for Loyola Law School, and has been named to the L.S.U. Law Center Hall of Fame and an honorary member of the Order of the Coif. He has delivered lectures to judges, lawyers and students in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Colorado, Michigan, Canada, France and Greece.

Co-author of the Louisiana Civil Law Treatise on Civil Procedure, Justice Lemmon has also served on the Civil Procedure, Criminal Procedure, Community Property, and Conflict of Laws Committees of the Louisiana State Law Institute, an organization of law professors, judges and lawyers that makes recommendations to the Legislature on revisions of the laws.
