Former federal Judge Frederick B Lacey has passed away. Readers may remember Judge Lacey as the Special Master appointed by a federal court in 1992 to redraw the state’s congressional districts after legislative leaders reached an impasse. The impasse was broken and a congressional plan was enacted by the legislature with the governor’s approval.
