MARK LANE HAS PASSED AWAY
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Mark Lane, famed Civil Rights attorney and author of the best-selling book, “Rush to Judgment,” which detailed the facts of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, died late last night at his home in Charlottesville, Virginia, at the age of 89. Lane, who was with his wife, Trish, at the time, suffered a heart attack and collapsed in her arms. He is survived by his wife and his three daughters, Anne Marie, Christina and Vita.
I met Mark Lane in February 1992 during his PLAUSIBLE DENIAL book tour at Borders Books in Pittsburgh, PA. There were 500+ people: the case was red-hot during the halcyon days of the JFK movie (bookstores had “JFK assassination” sections- remember?). That time period from 1988-1993 (pre-Posner LOL) were amazing days.
It was an honor to be mentioned on several pages of Mark’s 2012 book THE LAST WORD. I went from a relatively unknown person when I met him as a “fan” to HIM asking ME if he could use my stuff; pretty cool.
