New Mediator Appointed in Federal ENHANCE-Era Securities Class Actions — Pilgrim, For Politan

I just saw this — over the holiday weekend, Judge Cavanaugh appointed a new mediation firm, in the Schering-Plough (and Merck) ENHANCE-Era securities law class actions.

Apparently the highly-esteemed retired federal jurist Nicholas H. Politan (late of Caldwell, New Jersey, and South Florida), has passed away:

. . . .The Court having notified counsel by letter dated March 29, 2012 that a new mediator would be appointed due to the untimely death of Judge Politan. . . . Pilgrim Mediation, LLC (sole members: Stephen M. Greenberg and Jonathan J. Lerner) is hereby appointed. . . .

Our sincere condolences to the family of Judge Politan. He was always only one twinkling of an eye away from cutting loose a barbed-one-liner — to deflate several of the overly-self-important trial lawyers who appeared before him. His wit — and legal accumen — will be missed.
