Harley S. Tropin, senior partner at Kozyak Tropin & Throckmorton, received the 2016 Judge Learned Hand Award from AJC Miami and Broward on April 13, 2016. Established in 1964, the award cites legal professionals for excellence and contributions to the legal community. Recipients embody much of what the Judge represented: the rights of the individual and the importance of democratic values in an orderly society. Judge Hand, who was Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, has been quoted more often by scholars and the Supreme Court than any other lower-court judge. Dinner Co-Chairs included Hilarie Bass, Adam M. Moskowitz, Aaron S. Podhurst (2015 recipient), Marty Steinberg (2014) and John C. Sumberg.
