City Bar Honors Outstanding Assistant U.S. Attorneys with Henry L. Stimson Medal

The New York City Bar Association presented its annual Stimson Medal Awards last evening, honoring outstanding Assistant U.S. Attorneys from the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.

This year’s medal recipients are Brian Morris (Civil Division) and John J. Durham (Criminal Division) of the Eastern District, and Lara K. Eshkenazi (Civil Division) and Margaret M. Garnett (Criminal Division) of the Southern District.

City Bar President John S. Kiernan presented the awards. Eastern District Judge Joseph F. Bianco was the keynote speaker, and Mark R. Hellerer, Chair of the City Bar’s Stimson Medal Committee, moderated the event.

The medal is awarded in honor of Henry L. Stimson, who served as U.S. attorney for the Southern District from 1906–1909 and as President of the City Bar from 1937–1939. The awards are made possible by the generosity of the firm of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, Henry Stimson’s legacy firm.
