I am sorry to bring you the news that Lawrence M. Stone, tax partner at Irell & Manella (Los Angeles) and Tax Prof at UC-Berkeley for twelve years, died on Sunday, March 15, 2009, from Pulmonary Fibrosis. From Larry's profile:
A respected author in the field of income taxation, Mr. Stone is co-author of two widely used law school teaching books: Klein, Bankman, Bittker & Stone -- Federal Income Taxation (Aspen); and Doernberg, Abrams, Bittker & Stone -- Federal Income Taxation of Corporations (Aspen). He is a member of the American Law Institute and its Tax Advisory Group and various ABA committees including Standards of Tax Practice. He has served as a member of the IRS Commissioner's Advisory Group (1973-74) and the President's Nominating Commission for Appointments to the U.S. Tax Court (1976-1980).
In lieu of flowers, Larry asked that donations be made to:
