ST. PAUL, Minn. - Prominent Twin Cities attorney and media personality Ron Rosenbaum died early Sunday from an aggressive form of cancer.
He was 68-years-old.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Rosenbaum was involved in a number of high profile cases, including a sexual harassment lawsuit against then-North Stars owner Norm Green, academic fraud in the U of M basketball program, and others. He hosted a long-running podcast called Holding Court, and most recently co-hosted a program with sports personality Dan Barreiro on Fox 9 called Enough Said.
His wife Lucy Quinlivin announced Rosenbaum's passing on her Facebook page.
I’m deeply sorry to announce that Ron, my longtime partner and recent husband, died this morning from complications of multiple myeloma. He died at home, as he had wished, and his son, Nicholas, and I are grateful for the help we received from Our Lady of Peace community hospice program and many friends and relatives who offered support and comfort these past several weeks.
Ron was a rare and special character. His wonderful sense of humor was never exercised at the expense of other people’s vulnerabilities, and he had a well-developed sense of justice and fairness that had little to do with whether something was legal.
Ron collected and made fast, lifelong friends with the most interesting people from every phase of his life. Many of the people closest to him, including me, met and became friends through him, a fact that delighted him and made him proud.
Arrangements for a memorial service are pending.
Thank you all for your love and concern for Ron.Lucy
