Not good news… David Grossman

I suspect many readers of this blog already know this but since I am not on a clinic listserv, I only found out a couple of days ago that David Grossman died over the summer thanks to an alumni magazine.  I decided to go ahead a do a post about it in case others did not know.  I was one of David’s many students in both his clinic and his class, and my Housing Law class borrows heavily from the class he taught and from his mentoring.  This Boston Globe obituary is worth reading not only for what is says about David but what it says about how to make work more about making a difference than about self-promotion.  David was relentless in his defense of people facing eviction; one of the more notable examples of such dedication were “Grossman Agreements” which protected tenants from landlords who signed them.
