Listen to "A Real Mensch on the Bench"

From his Jewish Detroit background to groundbreaking rulings as Senior US District Judge of the US District Court of the Eastern District of Michigan, Judge Bernard Friedman has cultivated a sense of “rachmanis.” Just one of the Jewish values that have given him a light on life and the ability to think differently. We’ll hear about his role in the landmark Deboer Rowse case that led to the legalization of same sex marriage, other cases that have impacted him as a person, and as a Jewish person, most of all. Plus, his advice to new lawyers and the power of positive thinking.
