I deeply regret and am saddened to inform you that Paul Tunis, husband of Judge Dava J. Tunis, has passed away.
Paul was an excellent trial attorney and a valued member of the public defender's office for many years.
All services will be private and held out of state.
Condolences may be sent to:
Judge Dava J. Tunis
Richard E. Gerstein Building
1351 NW 12th
Miami, FL 33125
Please pass this information on to your offices and/or organizations if you wish.
Nushin G. Sayfie, Circuit Court Judge
Administrative Judge of the Criminal Division
We did not know Paul very well. But we knew his reputation as a superb lawyer. This is sad news.
On another topic: what if another supreme court justice passes away within the next month? What would the Republicans position be then on holding confirmation hearings?
See You In Court.
