In Memoriam: Judge Richard L. Speer

Apr 4, 2013

The College of Law was saddened to learn of the passing of Judge Richard L. Speer of United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio.  Judge Speer died Wednesday evening in Toledo after suffering an apparent heart attack.

Judge Speer earned both his bachelor’s and law degrees at Ohio Northern and worked closely with the College of Law in its bankruptcy clinic and moot court programs. 

Stephen Veltri, interim dean of Ohio Northern College of Law commented, “Judge Speer was always keenly interested in preparing young people for the practice of law and will be sorely missed by everyone at the College of Law.”
