Judges of all stripes, sizes, abilities and temperaments have come through the doors of the REGJB over the years. Some can't handle it, some think they can handle it but can't, some do a good job, and some do a great job. Every so often a Judge takes the bench who is liked and respected and does an outstanding job and then leaves us all too soon.
Such was the tenure of the late Judge Henry Leyte-Vidal, who was taken from us and his family way too soon by cancer. He is missed and not forgotten and we are proud to help spread the word of the Inaugural Judge Henry Leyte-Vidal Domino Night Against Cancer Benefiting La Liga Contra el Cancer on Friday, November 16, 2012 on the 6th floor terrace of 2100 Ponce De Leon Boulevard in Coral Gables.
If we recall correctly, the judge liked a nice scotch, so come, play some dominoes, help remember an outstanding jurist who is missed, and contribute to a worthy cause.
