An Honorable Man

Rest in Peace, your Honor.

Longtime judge dies in Laredo
By Julie Daffern - Laredo Morning Times

LAREDO — Judge Solomon Casseb Jr., who was a district court judge in San Antonio and became a senior district judge, died Friday night in Laredo.

He was 94 years old.

He was perhaps best known as the presiding judge in the Pennzoil vs. Texaco case in the mid-'80s, which resulted in the largest civil award in history to that point: $11 billion.
