NY Judge Scheindlin Leaves Bench, But Not Public Interest

Law360, New York (May 2, 2016, 9:02 PM EDT) -- Nearly every day for 22 years, U.S. District Judge Shira A. Scheindlin had walked over the Brooklyn Bridge from her home in Brooklyn to her chambers in Manhattan.

Friday marked Judge Scheindlin’s last day on the Southern District of New York bench, and as of Monday she began a new phase of her career, dedicating herself to public interest work as of counsel at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP — where she got her start in law nearly 40 years ago — and as an arbitrator, mediator and special master at alternative dispute resolution provider JAMS Inc.
