Author Obituaries

Lisabeth (Libby) Harrison, reporter to the Association of Justices of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Committee on Pattern Jury Instructions, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 69, on November 1, 2017. Libby served the Committee as reporter for 14 years, during which she made a significant and lasting contribution to the commentary and scholarship of the New York Pattern Jury Instructions-Civil. As the committee noted in tribute in this year's edition, “Libby was more than a colleague, she was a friend to everyone, a mentor and a constant advocate for perfection in our work.” Libby was a magna cum laude graduate of both SUNY at Stony Brook (1969) and St. John's University Law School (1979). Her remarkable career included many years of work as a social worker before becoming an attorney and working at the N.Y.S. Court of Appeals, the N.Y.S. Capital Defenders Office and for the Legal Aid Society. At the time of her death, she was Senior Counsel at Mintz & Gold LLP in addition to her work for the Committee. In addition to her great scholarship and intellect, Libby was beloved by her colleagues and friends for her kindness, generosity, and humanity.
