It is with profound sadness that I write with the heavy news that Lord Judge, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales between 2008 and 2013, passed away yesterday.
Lord Judge was not only a remarkable judge and leader, he was also a true friend to so many of us.
A fuller statement will be issued in due course but for now our thoughts are with Lady Judge, their children and grandchildren.
Baroness Carr of Walton-on-the-Hill
Lady Chief Justice of England and Wales
