In Brief—A tribute to Ted Garrett, whose superb service was anything but brief

Norman Dupont

Trends honors Ted Garrett, the steadfast author of the “In Brief” column, who is retiring after more than a quarter of a century at the helm of the popular summary of recent court decisions. Ted has served as the contributing editor of “In Brief” since 1991 and was a contributor to the column’s predecessor, “Briefly Stated,” between 1986 and 1991. In a time-span measured in terms familiar to the Capitol, his work on this column and its predecessor dates to the Reagan presidency. A long-time partner at the Washington, D.C., office of Covington & Burling, Ted will be moving on to other ventures. The Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources community will miss his invaluable contributions to Trends.
