I’m very sorry to report the death of Neil Kabatchnick. Neil was for many years the undisputed leader of the portion of the Court of Federal Claims bar that handles military cases. Many of the greatest victories were his. He was unstinting in his help to new practitioners, and could cite cases by volume and page number. He was personally modest and never sought the limelight, but he had a great nose for injustice and was tenacious on behalf of his clients. Born in Scranton 85 years ago, he served as a yeoman in the Navy.
