RIP Chief Justice Max Baer

“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.”  Psalms 95:6 (KJV) 

Tragic news has hit the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania and its Chief Justice Max Baer has died at the age of 74.

“This is a tremendous loss for the Court and all of Pennsylvania,” new Chief Justice Debra Todd said, Fox News reported.

“Pennsylvania has lost a jurist who served the Court and the citizens of the Commonwealth with distinction,” she said. “Chief Justice Baer was an influential and intellectual jurist whose unwavering focus was on administering fair and balanced justice.”

“He was a tireless champion for children, devoted to protecting and providing for our youngest and most vulnerable citizens,” she said.

“His distinguished service and commitment to justice and fairness spanned his decades on the bench – first as a family court judge in Allegheny County and eventually as administrative judge in family court before being elected to serve on the Supreme Court,” she said. “On behalf of the Court, we offer our deepest condolences to family, friends and colleagues of Chief Justice Baer.”
