UPDATE: Rob Pineiro's condition remains extremely serious. As several comments have indicated, including an eloquent statement by our State Attorney Ms. Rundle, his wife Barbara appreciates all the well wishes and prayers but wants to make sure everyone knows that this is a very personal time and the family wishes to be with him at the hospital without anyone outside of the family, no matter well intentioned, being present. I am certain everyone who counts Rob Pineiro as a friend, and who has been praying for him, will respect his family's wishes.
Judge Pineiro had a stroke. His condition is serious.
This is a great man who has touched so many lives in the course of his work and life.
Please take a moment today to reflect on how fragile life is and to keep Rob Pineiro and his family in your thoughts.
We are praying for him.
Earlier today we had received erroneous information that was confirmed by two separate sources. It is not correct. We truly regret any pain this has caused Rob Piniero's family.
