Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit died on March 29, but that did not prevent the court on Monday from issuing an en banc ruling he wrote as law of the circuit in an important gender wage gap case.

In a footnote, the court stated, “Prior to his death, Judge Reinhardt fully participated in this case and authored this opinion. The majority opinion and all concurrences were final, and voting was completed by the en banc court prior to his death.” The en banc panel heard argument in San Francisco on Dec. 12.
