I am sorry to bring you the news of the death of Dean Weiner, a former tax partner at O'Melveny & Myers and a long-time adjunct in the Loyola-L.A. Graduate Tax Program. In 2006, Dean accepted early retirement from O'Melveny and became a full-time Distinguished Lecturer at Loyola until he was diagnosed with a brain tumor a year ago. Jennifer Kowal, director of the graduate tax program, reports that "[a]lthough he was only full-time at Loyola for a short while, he quickly became an important part of our tax LLM community as an excellent teacher and good friend to our students and faculty." Dean's family has asked that contributions be made in Dean's memory to the L.A. public library and the Weingart Center Association.
