Chin Up At The Bar

Judge Denny Chin, US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, in his courtroom. Feb. 23, 2011.

This past February I photographed Judge Denny Chin for Fordham Magazine. Judge Chin had presided over the Bernie Madoff case in 2009 and shortly after I photographed him he ruled on Google’s plan to digitize every book ever published, rejecting Google’s settlement with authors and publishers.

To give a sense of before and after here’s assistant Chris standing in for the judge: Judge Not.

Update – 6/28/11: Sentence at Bernie’s.
