Harold H. Greene

THEN: U.S. District Court Judge Harold H. Greene was just a few years past presiding over the antitrust suit that broke up the AT&T telecommunications monopoly. The case was one of Greenes first after being named to the bench.

NOW: Judge Greene, who stopped hearing cases in 1998 and died in 2000, will always be remembered for his role in the AT&T divestiture — an event that he said, in a 1996 interview published in the Bar Report, “has proven to be of great benefit to American business, to the economy, and to American life in general, because it brought competition to the telecommunications industry.”
