Marty Ginsburg and Georgetown Law
I had been intending to take Professor Ginsburg’s Tax I class this coming fall as a capstone to my legal education. When I went to register and saw that his name was nowhere to be found, I figured he might have just taken the term off from teaching, as tenured titans may do from time to time. Turns out his absence was because of a much more serious reason.
A small anecdote: during my first year at Georgetown, I spotted H. Ross Perot’s name etched into the wall inside the entrance of McDonough Hall, the school’s main law building. I did some asking around to find out why he’d be a GULC benefactor. The answer? The Texas billionaire and former presidential candidate wanted to express his appreciation to Marty Ginsburg, his tax lawyer, for a job well done over the years.
My condolences to Justice Ginsburg and her family. I’ll be sitting shiva as I sit on the sidewalk tonight, convinced that Prof. Ginsburg is out there treating his friends old and new to a heavenly meal.
