Moritz alumni and a Moritz professor did quite well at the 2010 Columbus Bar Association Awards of Excellence banquet last month. Five Moritz alumni were honored for their work throughout the Columbus community.

Meredith K. Knueve ’99 was honored with the Community Service Award for attorneys 36 and under. The award recognizes attorneys who substantially contribute their time and effort in service to the central Ohio community. Their service must be outside the practice of law and must be given without compensation. Knueve is a senior attorney in the Columbus office of Bricker & Eckler.

Douglas S. Morgan ’82 was presented the Community Service Award for attorneys 37 and over. Morgan is a partner in the Columbus office of Hahn Loeser & Parks.

James A. Rutledge ’77, Lloyd E. Fisher, Jr. ’49, and Michael P. Mahoney ’72 were each given special recognition during the May 4 luncheon. The three were honored for their long-time service as leaders of the Pension Advisory Committee. Rutledge is a partner in the Columbus office of Bricker & Eckler. Fisher is a partner in the Columbus office of Porter Wright Morris & Arthur. Mahoney is a member in the Columbus office of Bailey Cavalieri.

Moritz professor Deborah J. Merritt was presented the association’s Liberty Bell Award. The award is given to an individual who, by extraordinary efforts in the community, has demonstrated leadership and dedication to the principles of our democratic system of government by law and who, by public respect and understanding of each citizen's duties, promotes the general welfare and secures the blessing of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. Merritt, the John Deaver Drinko-Baker & Hostetler Chair in Law, joined Ohio State in 1995.
