The Richard Linn American Inn of Court, which is headquartered in Chicago, on June 29, 2013, presented a video tribute to Federal Circuit Judge Richard Linn for his dedication and many years of service to justice, the legal profession, and the American Inns of Court's principles of civility, ethics, professionalism and excellence on behalf of the thousands of lawyers whose professional and personal lives Judge Linn has touched.
Chief Federal Circuit Judge Randall R. Rader commemorated the occasion with a letter which was read at the ceremony
The Richard Linn American Inn of Court is the fifth Inn of Court focused on intellectual property law. It is altogether fitting that the city of Chicago, with its rich history of excellence in intellectually property matters, should have an Inn of its own in this important area of the law. I am humbled and honored that the Inn bears my name, and I am proud to be associated with its outstanding members. I am also pleased with the leadership role the Inn is playing in fostering an alliance with the other IP Inns around the country and in working with leaders of the bar in other cities to form new intellectual property Inns in the future.
