Dennis Greene, Law Professor and Founding Member of Sha-Na-Na, Passes Away

Frederick Dennis Greene, a founding member of the rock and roll group Sha-Na-Na and a graduate of Yale Law School, has died after a brief illness. Among the courses Professor Greene taught at the University of Dayton Law School from 2004 to his death were Torts, Constitutional Law, and Entertainment Law. I had the honor of serving with him on the AALS Law and Film Committee and knew him as a charming, erudite, and witty colleague. I will miss him.
