Sadly, our friend, client, and colleague Clarence Ditlow has passed away at the age of 72.  Clarence, the Executive Director of the Center for Auto Safety since 1976, was one of the leading automobile safety advocates in the country for many decades and his work led directly to safety improvements that saved the lives of many thousands of people.  We recently represented Clarence in a major Freedom of Information Act case relating to the bailout of the auto industry and we worked closely with him on other issues over the years.  In addition to being a leading consumer advocate, Clarence was an ardent animal lover and gardener.  We are honored to have called him friend and colleague and will miss him greatly.
