Former ABA president Wm. T. (Bill) Robinson III, an “indefatigable champion of the rule of law,” died Tuesday at the age of 72.

Robinson was an active member of the ABA for more than 35 years, according to a statement expressing sympathy by current ABA President Linda A. Klein.

He served as ABA president in 2011-12 and as ABA treasurer in 2005-08. He “will be missed by the entire ABA family and legal community,” Klein said.
Robinson was a member of the ABA Board of Governors for 10 years and a member of the ABA House of Delegates for more than 30. He was chair of the ABA Standing Committee of the American Judicial System at the time of his death.

Robinson died after a seven-month battle with lung cancer, according to obituaries in the Northern Kentucky Tribune and the Cincinnati Business Courier. His wife, Joan, and other family members were by his side. Funeral arrangements are pending.
