The American Bar Association's Civil Rights and Social Justice Section presented Complex Litigation senior counsel Robert Weiner with its Father Robert F. Drinan Award for Distinguished Service on February 14, 2020, during the ABA Midyear Meeting at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas. Weiner was commended for his "creative legal approaches to dispose of cases expeditiously" and his demonstrated commitment to "advocate for civil rights and social justice throughout the ABA."

Named after the late Father Robert F. Drinan, a former member of Congress who chaired the Section from 1990 to 1991, the award recognizes attorneys whose "sustained and extraordinary commitment" has strengthened the Section's mission of "providing leadership to the legal profession in protecting and advancing human rights, civil liberties, and social justice."
