We are saddened to report the passing of the Honorable Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum on February 5th at the age of 86. She served as a federal judge in Manhattan for more than twenty-five years.

During that time, Judge Cedarbaum presided over numerous important cases, including copyright cases. In 2002, she ruled in a dispute between the Martha Graham Dance Company and Graham's heir over who owned the choreographer's works. Judge Cedarbaum's decision was that the Company held the copyrights to a vast majority of the works.

In addition to her position as federal judge, she served as an assistant U.S. attorney in Manhattan and a Justice Department lawyer in Washington, DC, as well as Associate Counsel for the Museum of Modern Art and an attorney with Davis, Polk & Wardwell.

Judge Cedarbaum was active in the Copyright Society, attending the Society's national meetings.
