LEONARD B. SAND, U.S.D.J., S.D.N.Y., COLLECTION
The Honorable Leonard B. Sand, a senior judge on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, generously donated a selection of his papers to Pace Law School Archives. These papers include volumes of the Harvard Law Review published while Judge Sand was a member and Note Editor, as well as copies of briefs written when Judge Sand was an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, an Assistant to the U.S. Solicitor General, and in private practice. The collection also contains documents used and annotated by Judge Sand, who represented the appellants, in an important New York reapportionment case, W.M.C.A., Inc. v. Lomenzo, 377 U.S. 633 (1964), including recordings of the oral argument before the U.S. Supreme Court. Also in the collection are bound copies of district court opinions written by Judge Sand from 1983 to 2010. Several of these opinions were written in United States v. Yonkers Board of Education, in which Judge Sand determined that the Yonkers, New York, school system had violated the civil rights of students in its schools, and ordered a detailed school desegregation plan. In that litigation, Judge Sand appointed Joseph M. Pastore, whose papers are also in the Pace Law School Archives, to monitor the desegregation process of the Yonkers schools.
