Washington Law Review


To James A. Garfield's aphorism that the best education would be found with the student on one end of a bench and Mark Hopkins at the other I would add that the best education for a new member of the Washington Supreme Court is to have had Charles Horowitz at one end of the bench and the new member on the other. During the 42 years I have been a member of the court, through the implacable rules of seniority, he occupied one end of the bench and I the other. In the conference room, however, I always sat directly across from him. To have seen Charlie Horowitz in action from either perspective was one of those experiences which transforms one's life.
