  1. BDE. I am aware of favors he did for people for no money, which is highly unusual for anyone politically involved.

    I believe he lived in Flatbush, not Boro Park.

  2. Did he retire from he bench; did not notice him running for reelection?
    For his staff, not having a job in the courthouse was like not living.
    He knew how to learn and loved to learn; may he get what he deserves.
