Upon Tuesday’s death of retired Justice John Paul Stevens of the U.S. Supreme Court, two well-known lawyers in Atlanta who clerked for Stevens agreed to share their thoughts on him with the readers of the Daily Report. Teresa Wynn Roseborough, now the top lawyer at the Home Depot, clerked for Stevens during the 1987-88 term. Robert A. Schapiro, a former dean of Emory University School of Law and now a professor there, clerked for the justice during the 1991-92 term. Their remarks are below—Roseborough’s and then Schapiro’s.
