In Memorium: Joseph M. Farber

Joseph M. Farber died of a brain tumor May 22 at home. He was a member of the team of lawyers who won a widely hailed court decision barring the teaching of intelligent design in Dover, Penn.

According to lead the plaintff's attorney in the Kitzmiller vs. Dover trial, Eric Rothschild, Farber demonstrated a great commitment to civil liberties. He was the first Pepper Hamilton associate recruited to work on the case, and he uncovered key evidence at a deposition that a Dover school board member collected money from his church congregation to buy 60 copies of the intelligent design textbook Of Pandas and People, for use in the school district.
