On March 8, 2012, our colleague and friend, John Carroll, was taken from us suddenly at the untimely age of forty-four. John grew up in Richmond, Virginia, attending Midlothian High School. Following high school, John attended Virginia Tech from which he earned his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 1989. After working for a couple of years as an engineer and teacher, John entered the University of Richmond Law School in 1992 and received his J.D., with honors, in 1995. From 1995 to 1998, John practiced law full time in Virginia Beach, Virginia, first with Payne, Gates, Farthing & Radd and then with Clark & Stant, which became part of Williams Mullen. In 1998, John entered New York University Law School from which he earned his LL.M. in 1999.
