ACJF Loses Two Friends

Over the holiday period, the Alabama Civil Justice Foundation lost two friends. One was Alabama’s former Governor Albert Brewer. Governor Brewer was ACJF’s 2011 Roast & Toast Gala Honoree. On the evening of June 2, the Alabama legal community and friends celebrated this great statesman, himself a lawyers, with over 250 guests. There was so much laughter and applause, standing ovations, and moments of pride for the past and hope for the future. It was an exceptional evening that drew rave reviews. ACJF will always remain very appreciative of Governor Brewer for allowing us to honor him in this way. obit

ACJF’s other friend who passed away during the holidays was Martha Bidez, a former board member. Martha was a brilliant engineer who was also committed to justice for those in need. Her astounding professional career is outlined here. However, Martha gave so much to various nonprofits working to make this a better world. ACJF was very fortunate to be among those organizations that benefited from her compassionate advice and her extensive energy. She served on our board from 1995 to 1999.

The Alabama Civil Justice Foundation mourns the families and the state’s loss of both of these individuals.
"Miss Nina" Miglionico has been named ACJF's new Pioneers of Justice Society Honoree!
