The US Tax Court announced that former Judge Herbert Chabot
passed away on October 11, 2022.
Judge Chabot joined the Tax Court in 1978, serving as a regular
judge and then as a senior judge for almost 40 years. Before being
appointed to the Tax Court, he served on the staff of the
Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation for over a dozen years.
Prior to that, he clerked at the Tax Court, served on the Legal
Staff of the American Jewish Congress and served in the US Army and
the Army Reserves.
We both knew Judge Chabot well during our time clerking at the
Tax Court. He was very thoughtful and cared deeply about reaching
the correct result in each case. The Tax Court's announcement
aptly states: "He was a delightful storyteller and often
regaled his colleagues and law clerks with wonderful stories. His
charm, humor, and ubiquitous bowtie will be missed."
