I wrote last week at Legal Blog Watch about the sad news of the suicide of Francis J. D’Eramo, a Superior Court judge in the U.S. Virgin Islands (where I am an inactive member of the bar). A memorial fund has now been established for the benefit of his children. Anyone wishing to contribute may send contributions to P.O. Box 223804, Christiansted, VI 00822. Contributions should be payable to Kimberly D’Eramo, trustee. A more recent article about his death is here.
