    We are saddened to have to share the news of the death of Carole Aciman, 2005-2006 NCWBA president. A native of France, she was a New Yorker by choice and focused her practice on intellectual property law and entertainment law in an international context. She suffered a serious motorcycle accident in early May 2014 and remained in a coma thereafter.  Below is a message from her brother.

    On Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at 6 pm at the University Hospital of Rouen, France, Carole died after 15 months of a fierce struggle to stay alive.  The vital functions of her body deteriorated suddenly and her heart slowly but surely stopped beating.   Thanks to the care provided by the medical profession, she left us without suffering. Carole will forever remain in our hearts as a loving woman, filled with the breath of life and the joy of living, profoundly kind , and always available to others. A ceremony in the chapel of Rouen University Hospital followed by cremation at the crematorium of Rouen will take place this weekend in the privacy of the family.  On behalf of the family, I want to thank you for all the messages of support testified throughout this long and hard trial.  There is one more star shining in the sky.

    Carole’s brother, Jean-Marc Piacentile
