Passing of Steven S. Honigman (1948-2022)
a distinguished career at the bar and in public service, including major contributions to military justice. He graduated from NYU and Yale Law School. After a federal court clerkship, he attended the Naval Justice School and served on active duty for four years in the Navy Judge Advocate General's Corps. For a number of years he chaired the Military and Veterans Affairs Committee of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York (a/k/a the New York City Bar), and shepherded through an important military justice reform proposal. He was a public member of the Military Justice Act of 1983 Advisory Commission and served for five years as General Counsel of the Navy during the Clinton Administration. In the Gilbert and Sullivan canon, Steve was especially partial to "I am the Monarch of the Sea (When I was a Lad" from Act I of HMS Pinafore. Sincere condolences to Steve's wife and daughter, Drs. Irene Finel-Honigman and Ana Finel Honigman.
