I am very sad to report that Notre Dame law professor John Nagle passed away after a brief illness. John wrote primarily in the area of environmental law, but he wrote occasionally in the field of election law and legislation. I got to know him a bit when he invited me to a symposium for the Journal of Legislation on a book of mine.
He was a kind and decent person, very generous with his praise and in sharing his wisdom. He was very smart and we all learned so much from him.
Condolences to his family and friends.
