(Update June 28 – the NY Times has an article about Judge Brozman here).

From the Wall Steeet Journal Legal Blog

Tina Brozman, the former chief judge of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan and the co-head of Bingham McCutchen’s restructuring practice, died yesterday after a long battle with cancer. She was 54. …

At 32, Brozman (Fordham Law) became the youngest bankruptcy judge ever appointed in the Second Circuit. Prior to becoming a judge, she was a partner at Anderson Kill; she joined Bingham McCutchen in 2000 after stepping down from the bench. Most recently, Brozman had worked on the high-profile bankruptcy of Refco, representing the trustee of Refco Capital Markets. The National Law Journal recently named her one of the 50 Most Influential Women Lawyers in America.
