One footnote, not mentioned in this excellent obituary by Richard Sandomir in the Times, is that In 2006 Gibbons directed two young lawyer lobbyists at his law firm to press to accomplish the repeal of the death penalty by the New Jersey Legislature. They helped to bring about repeal in December 2007, an event marked by illumination of the Colosseum in Rome. – gwc
