Former Chief Justice dies

Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria, John Harber Phillips, died today.

I only ever had the opportunity to meet him twice. He seemed a thoroughly decent gentleman, and was certainly a well-respected jurist throughout Victoria and Australia.

The Victorian Bar has a short obituary online already. No doubt there will be much more written about his achievements explaining his contribution to Victoria's legal system.
