Conscience

Continued from preceding page

unpleasant ordeal of Brody's
life.
"It was traumatic because
we were all working under a
cloud," Brody said. "There
were constant revelations and
you never knew what was go-
ing to happen next."
Ironically, one of August's
first big cases was represen-
ting Adat Shalom when it fil-
ed for bankruptcy.
Brody arrived at bankrupt-
cy court through an unlikely
route. After graduating from
City College of New York, he
held various odd jobs, in-
cluding working as a prison
guard at a federal minimum
penitentiary in Pennsylvania.
Brody had been promised a
job as the prison's athletic
director, but it never
materialized.
In 1942, Brody moved to
Detroit to take an executive
training course at Chrysler
Corp. He later enrolled at the
University of Michigan Law
School where he received a
scholarship.
In 1947, Brody graduated
from U-M and taught law at
the University of Toledo. He
also moonlighted as the
school's freshman basketball
coach. Brody points out with
delight that his team won
their league championship
under his leadership.
Brody later worked as a
staff attorney at the Office of
Price Stabilization in
Washington, D.C. He also did
brief stints with law firms in
New York and California.
He returned to Michigan in
1957 to serve as a law clerk
to U.S. District Court Judge
Theodore Levin. Brody had
gone to law school with
Levin's son, Charles, who is
now a justice of the Michigan
Supreme Court. Two years
later, there was an opening
for a bankruptcy referee in
the Eastern District and the
elder Levin recommended
Brody for the position. The
position of bankruptcy referee
was elevated to a judgeship in
1973.
As a judge, Brody showed
little patience for attorneys
appearing before him who
were not well versed in
bankruptcy law. It wasn't
unusual for Brody to chastise
attorneys before their col-
leagues and clients. Many
bankruptcy lawyers readily
admitted they were terrorized
by the judge's presence.
"The first time I appeared
before Judge Brody, I literal-
ly didn't say a word," Ruskin
recalled. "The court
stenographer came up to me
later to ask my name. There
was nothing on the court
record to indicate I was even
there?'
Brody, a member of the Na-

Judge Brody: He brought
credibility to the courtroom.

tional Bankruptcy Con-
ference, has published books
and articles on bankruptcy
law and is known nationally
as one of the leading experts
in his field.
"The opinions Judge Brody
wrote have widespread accep-
tance," said Clive W. Bare, a
Knoxville, Milli. attorney and
former bankruptcy court
judge. "He has written many
lucid and clear opinions and
is recognized as one of the
outstanding judges in the
country."
Brody, who never married,
intends to remain active. He
has agreed to sit as a visiting
judge in various bankruptcy
courts around the country. He
also plans to explore various
interests, including Judaism.
"I've lived alone all my life
in many different cities and
couldn't get involved in
Jewish activities," Brody said.
"I want to become more
aware and knowledgeable
about Judaism." ■
