Lawyer in Kitzmiller Case Dies

Joseph M. Farber, 34, an attorney with the law firm Pepper Hamilton in Philadelphia and a member of the team of lawyers that won the court decision in Kitzmiller v. Dover School District barring the teaching of intelligent design, died of a brain tumor on May 22.

[Eric] Rothschild said Mr. Farber uncovered key evidence at a deposition that a Dover school board member collected money from his church congregation to buy 60 copies of the intelligent design textbook Of Pandas and People, for use in the school district.

Mr. Farber is survived by his wife Carol; sons Nathaniel and Samuel; parents David and Gloria Farber; and a brother.

A memorial service will be held at 3:30 Sunday at Haverford Friends Meeting, 855 Buck Lane, Haverford.
