One of the longest and most prolific professional careers in the history of the District of Columbia concluded in November, 2007 with the retirement of our longtime Legal Editor Michael A. Schuchat. During a 51-year career, he reviewed an estimated 40,000 written opinions and wrote headnotes for nearly 35,000 of them from every major court in the nation’s capital. It is a staggering work product to behold. Having read and digested that much case law he was undoubtedly a repository of legal knowledge that rivals, or exceeds, that of any appellate judge, anywhere.
