Attorney General Dale Marshall and president of the Bar Association Rosalind Smith-Millar yesterday paid tribute to retired jurist Leroy Inniss, who passed away on Thursday.
Calling Inniss a “friend”, Marshall noted: “He was a man of humble beginnings and kept that humility throughout his life and in his several careers.
“As a teacher, and for his work with PAREDOS and other causes, he will be remembered for his passion and commitment. But Justice Inniss will perhaps be best remembered for his zeal as an attorney-at-law and for his sharp legal mind.
“He was a doughty campaigner in all of our courts, and reached his professional zenith as a labour lawyer, in which field he was unmatched.” (MB)
