Chief Justice regrets the death of Teori Zavascki, "one of the most brilliant judges in the history of our Justice"

Thursday, January 19, 2017

"The consternation took the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF), on this January 19, with the news of death of one of the most brilliant judges who helped to build the history of this Court and of the Country. Justice Teori Zavascki represents one of the highlights on the history of our Justice. His work will last forever, and his presence and example will remain as a guidance from which we will not be diverted, aware that people die, their works and examples do not.

Death puts an end to a Life, nevertheless do not end the friendship, the noble, gentle and fruitful acquaintanceship with the friend of the friends. Nor the generosity with everyone which distinguished Justice Teori Zavascki. 

The feeling of pain and longing will serve as a permanent reminder of the commitments which marked the life of the Justice, a responsibility of ours, in order to persevere, also in his honor, on the same path.

The Supreme Federal Court stands in solidarity with the family of Justice Teori Zavascki and thanks the expressions of regret received by his death”. 

Chief Justice Cármen Lúcia 

President of the Supreme Federal Court
