David Sive, Father of Environmental Law, Passes Away


David Sive, an intellectual and spiritual leader of the modern environmental law movement, passed away on March 12, 2014. He played an important part in keeping the Adirondacks and Catskills "forever wild" and was instrumental in the Storm King Mountain decision. Through numerous cases, Sive greatly advanced the environmental movement. He taught at Columbia and Pace Law Schools and was the founding partner of Sive, Paget & Riesel P.C.

Sive, Paget & Riesel and the New York Times have more details about this incredible man's life.

The NYSBA Environmental Law Section mourns this great loss and sends his family its condolences.
