T The Louisiana Supreme
     Court will soon be saying
goodbye to Tim Averill, who has
served as the Deputy  Judicial
Administrator/General  Coun-
sel here at the court for almost
twenty years. Tim has accepted a
one-year fellowship with the U.S.
Supreme  Court in Washington,
D.C., and he will be leaving us
this summer.

In his current job, he contributes
to the administration of the Lou-
isiana court system and provides
legal analysis on a wide variety
of issues affecting the bench and
bar. Since his work involves quite
a bit of research, he's a familiar
figure in the law library, where he
frequently can be seen sitting at
one of the tables near the Loui-
siana acts and codified statutes.

I joked with him and said that
when  he leaves, we would put a
Tim  Averill Memorial Chair
plaque on his usual seat.

Tim   is not  only  extremely
knowledgeable and helpful but
also friendly and personable, and
he will be greatly missed around
here. He had a stellar academic
career, first at James Madison
University in Harrisonburg, VA,
where he earned a B.A. in Eng-
lish, then at the University of
Kentucky  before he moved on
to the University of Alabama,
where he received a Master of
Public Administration degree.

He  worked to support himself
through his decade of education
at various jobs, including some
time spent as a golf shop atten-
dant. His first serious full-time

job was as a labor representa-
tive for the Civil Service Em-
ployees Association in Albany,
NY, where  he aided association
members  in salary and employ-
ment disputes and in negotiating
terms and conditions of employ-
ment. His  next move  brought
him  to New Orleans, where he
attended law school and got his
J.D. from Loyola University in
May   1985, graduating in the
top 20th percentile of his class.
He  has been a member  of the
Louisiana Bar since October of
that year. He worked at three
different law firms while in law
school and  immediately  after
graduation, specializing various-
ly in admiralty, casualty, medical
malpractice, insurance, criminal,
and business law. No wonder he
knows so much!

On  numerous occasions, the Law
Library has been called upon to
research biographical informa-
tion about justices who served
on   the  Louisiana  Supreme
Court. In the interest of facili-
tating such inquiries, the library
will soon post a new pathfinder
on its website.

The Judges pathfinder will in-
clude resources for researching
all Louisiana judges, past and
present, including those of the
Supreme  Court, Circuit Courts,
District Courts, and Parish/City
Courts. All listed resources are

owned  by the library or may be
accessed from any of our public
PCs.  One easily browseable re-
source is the Guide to the Louisi-
ana Judiciary (Reserve KFL 508
.G85 2000), which collates basic
biographical information about
each judge in the state. Tran-
scripts of memorials, inductions
and retirement ceremonies can
be found in the front matter of
the Louisiana Reports and the
Louisiana Cases, So. 2d (Refer-
ence KFL 45  A21).

Available from the library is an
index of judges who appear in

the  front matter from  1813-
2002. Past that date, the names
of judges who are the subject of
such ceremonies can be located
on the spine of the reporter vol-
umes.  Janice Shull's [he Chief
Justices ofLouisiana. Life Sketches
(KFL   512.Z9 S58  2007) is a
fine place to begin researching
information about  Louisiana's
chief justices throughout history.
These resources and many more
are  listed on the pathfinder,
which can be accessed at http://
braryjinformation. asp (scroll
down  for the pathfinders). 6
