In Memory of Robert L. Dunn
ROBERT L. DUNN
Our condolences go out to the family of Robert L. Dunn, who died on April 13, 2013 when his car struck a tree along Highway 1 in Northern Sonoma County, California. Mr. Dunn’s untimely death is a great loss to the litigation world, as well as to Courtroom Insight for which he was a Strategic Adviser.
Early in his professional career as an attorney, Mr. Dunn realized the need for analysis and categorization of important court decisions involving lost profits and related business damages. In 1978, he published the first edition of Recovery of Damages for Lost Profits. For over 30 years, he continued researching legal cases and updating the book, which was last released as the two-volume 6th edition. Mr. Dunn published two additional books—Recovery of Damages for Fraud and Winning with Expert Witnesses in Commercial Litigation. A couple of years ago, he launched the quarterly journal titled Dunn on Damages—The Economic Damages Report for Litigators and Experts. Mr. Dunn was widely recognized and respected for his expertise in economic damages both from the legal and non-legal perspectives, and was a frequent speaker at national conferences for professionals interested in these topics.
Mr. Dunn was perhaps the best known lawyer in the country on the topic of damages, particularly among accountants and economists addressing damages issues for the litigation arena. Courtroom Insight extends the most sincere condolences to Linda Barry Dunn, Mr. Dunn’s wife, his family and friends.
