Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton leads memo­rial for Janet Reno

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

MIAMI | For­mer At­tor­ney Gen­eral Janet Reno, the first woman to hold the top Jus­tice Depart­ment job who died last month, never took the easy way out when mak­ing the tougher de­ci­sion was the right thing to do, for­mer Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton said at a memo­rial ser­vice Sun­day.

Mr. Clin­ton, who ap­pointed Reno in 1993, told sev­eral hun­dred friends, fam­ily and col­leagues that she didn’t be­lieve in po­lit­i­cal ex­pe­di­ency or cut­ting cor­ners.

The ser­vice was held at a Mi­amiDade Col­lege cam­pus not far from the Reno fam­ily home, where Reno died Nov. 7 at age 78 from com­pli­ca­tions from Parkin­son’s dis­ease. She had bat­tled the dis­ease for 20 years, in­clud­ing most of her time as at­tor­ney gen­eral.
