Agents Of Change

May 2024

As an avid reader of American Heritage I particularly enjoyed the fortieth anniversary issue. I was also pleased to see that one of my former law partners, the late John Flynn, the “ Miranda lawyer,” was profiled as one of the ten “agents of change” who have made today’s world vastly different from forty years ago.

Knowing your penchant for historical accuracy, I wish to point out an inaccuracy in your profile. It states that Flynn became a judge on the Arizona Court of Appeals. In fact, Flynn remained in private practice and continued trying cases until his untimely death. Indeed, for those of us who knew John well, the thought of him willingly assuming the life and lifestyle of an appellate judge is implausible to say the least.

We hope you enjoy our work.
