    I am heartbroken to learn of the passing of Bruce Mitchell.  He was a gifted attorney, a passionate advocate for the motor carrier industry, and a close personal friend.  His contributions to the Transportation Lawyers Association were numerous and profound.  In particular, he was the genius behind the formation of the Commercial Litigation Committee and regularly kept the membership informed of important developments in this area of practice.  For many years Bruce has served as TLA's unofficial "go to guy" for any member needing assistance in the Atlanta metro area and throughout the southeast.  My condolences to his family, friends and business associates.  He is irreplaceable and will be missed.
