Judge Kevin Thomas Duffy ’58 died on April 1 at the age of 87 due to complications from COVID-19. During his time as a federal judge in Manhattan, he presided over many high-profile cases including the 1993 trial of the Islamic militants who were convicted for the attacks on the World Trade Center.
Dean Matthew Diller said “Judge Kevin Duffy was a giant in the legal community who devoted his life to serving our country. In his 44-year career on the bench, Judge Duffy presided over one critically important complex trial after another – demonstrating how the U.S district courts are an engine for justice. He was also a good friend, a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He was a key member of the Fordham Law community and will be deeply missed.”
