Judge Rosen has served for 24 years as a U.S. District Court judge in Detroit (five years as chief judge). Rosen delivered the 29th annual I. Goodman Cohen Lecture in Trial Advocacy at Wayne State University Law School in Detroit in February. Rosen’s lecture was titled “Trial Practice as Viewed from the Perspective of the Trial Judge.” Rosen was also in the news for his work as the federal mediator in the Detroit bankruptcy case. One of his ideas suggested that foundations contribute money to bolster at-risk city pensions and prevent the Detroit Institute of Arts from having to sell its artworks. A Detroit Free Press article (January 14) noted that the idea had resulted in pledges of some $330 million.
