Judge George Hatch, R.I.P.

This afternoon, the staff of DVD Verdict was deeply saddened to learn of the sudden passing of one of our colleagues, George Hatch.

During my tenure on the Verdict editorial team, George was, for a short time, one of the writers whose reviews I edited. I found him passionate and conscientious about his work, intensely thoughtful about his wordcraft, and knowledgeable to a fault in the subjects about which he wrote.

A New York native, George was a man of diverse — and often surprising — experience, charming wit, and eclectic talents. DVD Verdict will feel his loss greatly. Although I never met George in person, and knew him only through occasional correspondence and his body of writing, I suspect that the world he inhabited will miss him greatly also.

If you'd like to get a sense for the kind of writer George was, please take a moment to stop over to the Verdict and peruse a few of his reviews. You'll find the time well spent. Probably even enlightening.

My sincerest condolences to George's family, coworkers, loved ones, and friends.
