Leadership   Achievement
Award   on   October  21,

the


The  Judicial Leadership
Achievement Award
honors   individuals and
organizations     whose
outstanding   work has
contributed to reforming
the  United   States civil
justice system. The  ILR


seeks  to  halt  fraudu-
lent   lawsuit  practices
and  abuse in the justice
system  by working  with
state governments, courts,
Congress,   and   federal
regulators. More   about
the  ILR  can  be  found
here:  http://www.insti-
tuteforlegalreform. com/.

In     presenting    the
award,  the  ILR  recog-
nized  Justice  Victory's
strong   leadership   of
the  Louisiana  Supreme
Court   during his years
on  the bench.   He  was
praised for using a strict
constructionist approach
in  deciding  cases  and
also for his superior legal
reasoning. A  number  of
opinions   authored   by
Justice  Victory  helped
to curb lawsuit abuse in
Louisiana.

Justice Victory will retire
at the  end  of the year,
having served 20 years on
the  Louisiana  Supreme
Court.   He graduated
from  Centenary  College
