Here is the press release announcing the sad news that Chief Judge Richard Greene died this weekend from complications arising from heart complications. It's no great secret that Chief Judge Greene was extremely intellectually interested in the Fourth Amendment (even though he came from a mostly civil-law practice background) and therefore we frequently had very scholarly in-court discussions with him and decisions from him. Moreover, he had a great temprement as a jurist in general and was just starting to hit his stride as leader of the COA. A sad day for the Kansas Judiciary.
