Richard P. Figone

Governor Ronald Reagan appointed Judge Figone to the San Francisco Municipal Court in 1974. He remained on the lower court bench until his election in 1980 to the Superior Court, where he presided over some of the first asbestos and Dalkon Shield product liability trials. He served as presiding Superior Court judge in 1994.

Although some of his decisions involved millions of dollars, his most celebrated case was a small- claims lawsuit for $38.

In 1978, a 41-year-old accountant sued a 31-year-old waitress at the Vesuvio Cafe in North Beach for failing to show up for a prearranged evening at the theater. The accountant attempted to recover expenses for his 50-mile drive from San Jose to San Francisco, plus two hours at his "minimum rate of $8.50 an hour."

The case attracted worldwide attention, in part because The New York Times gave it extensive coverage.

Judge Figone's decision quoted Lord Byron and the ancient Roman orator, Quintilian, and even captured the fancy of a German rock band, which recorded the opinion.

The judge ruled against the plaintiff, finding that the "promise to engage in a social relationship for one evening in exchange for affection and/or an evening at the theater is unenforceable under the law of contracts and torts."

Judge Figone attended SS Peter and Paul school, Saint Ignatius High School, Stanford University and the University of San Francisco School of Law.

He was the president of several Italian American groups, and he received the honorific title of Order of Merit from the Republic of Italy in 1976. He also received numerous honors from legal groups.

Judge Figone is survived by his wife, Anna, and his two children, Nicolas and Cristina, San Francisco.

A Rosary and Funeral Mass will be held at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at SS Peter and Paul's Church in North Beach. Contributions may be made to the St. Ignatius Scholarship Fund or the Salesian Boys and Girls Club.

  • Storytime with Seth Rogen

    Hi! Welcome to Storytime with Seth Rogen, where every week Seth asks somebody, “Do you have a great story? And if you do, will you tell it on my podcast?” That’s it. That’s the concept. But the results are so much more than that. This is not a typical comedian-hosted chat show! Each episode plays like a little audio documentary, a feature presentation unto itself, with supporting interviews and archival tape woven into each story with a rhythmic editing style. Not all the stories are knee-slap funny, and not all the guests are known. From a near-death grizzly bear fight in remote Canada, to a life-altering celebrity encounter in a movie theatre, to the revelation of a family secret, Storytime starts with Seth’s curiosity about people and the world, and always ends up in an unexpected place.
