On Friday, December 30, 2005, the alternative dispute resolution community here in New England lost a beloved friend, Jim Suskin, an attorney, mediator, and arbitrator from Vermont. Over two years ago, Jim suffered severe brain injury in a tragic bicycle accident, but in recognition of his significant lifetime achievements and his enduring presence, the Vermont Legislature enacted a concurrent resolution to honor Jim and his many important contributions. You can read the text of the resolution here.
A memorial service is being held today at 1 p.m. in College Hall Chapel at Vermont College of Union Institute, College Street, Montpelier, Vermont. Donations in Jim’s memory may be sent to Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice, 600 Granger Road, Barre, Vermont 05641.
