As judges, Austin Staley and I have grown up together. Eighteen years ago, at about the same time, we came to the bench of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. We have been colleagues ever since. This has meant continuing close association in and shared responsibility for the decision of thousands of cases, affecting the interests large and small of uncounted litigants. In the long course of such association men learn each other's measure, professionally and, more broadly, as human beings. And when, as in the case of Judge Staley, so much that is admirable is revealed, it becomes a happy privilege to write of the judge and the man as he has disclosed himself to his colleagues.
