FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


PUBLIC STATEMENT

On behalf of the Louisiana Supreme Court and the Louisiana Judicial College, Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson issued the following statement today:


The Justices of the Louisiana Supreme Court and Governors of the Louisiana Judicial College share in the sadness felt throughout the academic and legal communities from the passing of Cheney C. Joseph, Jr., the recently retired Executive Director of the Louisiana Judicial College. Professor Joseph was a giant in the legal profession whose career touched many lives in many ways. The Louisiana Judicial College, which oversees the continuing legal education of the state's judiciary, has been under the able stewardship of Cheney since 2001. Cheney made immeasurable contributions at LSU Law School as a professor, vice-chancellor and dean; at the State Law Institute as a legal scholar; as a distinguished attorney; and as a pro tempore judge. Cheney served as a member of numerous Supreme Court committees and was a frequent adviser to the court on matters of criminal law and procedure. In November, to honor Cheney's exceptional service, the Louisiana Supreme Court appointed him Executive Director Emeritus of the Judicial College. The professional contributions of Cheney will not be easily matched. His influence on Louisiana law and the Louisiana judiciary will be felt for decades. A true legal scholar and educator, he will be greatly missed.
