He ran an innovative political campaign for the time, with signs stating "The Postman is Coming!" And now we are passing along that former Circuit Judge Alan Postman passed away on May 1, 2018, after battling medical issues for several years.
Judge Postman served in the Circuit Criminal and Civil Divisions from 1991-2003 and presided over some notable cases including a large class action tobacco lawsuit in 1998 and a case where he awarded over seven million dollars to the ex-wife of Cuban spy Juan Pablo Roque, where Postman wrote, ”Cuba committed acts of sexual battery, torture and terrorism by orchestrating Roque's sham marriage so he could infiltrate the exile community.
