Long-time NITA faculty member Benjamin Riddles recently lost his son Benny to sudden cardiac arrest. NITA’s Ben Riddles has been a prominent teacher at many of our programs in the DC area. NITA is deeply saddened by this news and offer our heartfelt condolences to the DC faculty and the Riddles family during this time of sorrow.
NITA extends our condolences to Gary Williams, our long-time Program Director and trial advocacy professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. Gary’s beloved wife Melanie passed away on the night of January 2, 2015. The faculty and alumni of the Los Angeles Trial Skills Program at Loyola, a close-knit group, were with Gary as he opened NITA’s trial skills program that morning. We are grateful to our NITA friends for their support of Gary as his wife took ill. Gary remains very much in our thoughts during this challenging time. We extend our sympathies also to the faculty and friends of the Williams family.
