The obituary of Deloura Bristow, which was published on Oct. 19, incorrectly reported how her first marriage ended. Her first husband, Donald Bonow, died in 1969. (Published 10/20/93)
Richard Manning Ricks, 40, a criminal lawyer whose hearing loss led to the installation of the first simultaneous translation equipment in D.C. Superior Court, died of cancer Oct. 16 at his home in Washington.
Mr. Ricks, who represented indigent defendants in the court for more than a decade, began losing his hearing to a degenerative disease in 1984. Participating in cases became increasingly difficult for him, and for a time, he withdrew from court practice.
In 1991, the Superior Court installed a computer terminal that displayed translations of courtroom discussion, allowing him to return to full-time trial work. He also relied on an amplifier to augment his hearing, then reduced to less than 25 percent in one ear only. He won his case the day the equipment was launched.
Mr. Ricks was born in Chicago. He was a graduate of Evergreen State University in Washington state and, after moving to the Washington area in the 1970s, Antioch Law School. While a student at Antioch, he participated in litigation on behalf of indigent hospital patients.
Later, as a lawyer, he also worked on a Freedom of Information Act case in District Court that established the principle that the Privacy Act was not a blockade to FOI requests.
Early in his career, Mr. Ricks worked for a law firm and as counsel to the National Organization for the Legalization of Marijuana. More recently, he was in practice with his wife, J.E. McNeil.
He and his wife founded an organization, the Grain of Mustard Seed, to help pay travel and other expenses for D.C. drug defendants receiving drug treatment outside the Washington area.
Mr. Ricks was a member of the Superior Court Trial Lawyers Association and the Friends Meeting of Washington.
In addition to his wife, of Washington, survivors include a son, Russell Ricks-McNeil of Washington; his parents, Anne and David Ricks of Cincinnati; two brothers, David Ricks of Albuquerque and Thomas Ricks of Silver Spring; and three sisters, Margaret Ricks Doherty of Montague, Mass., Dr. Anne Sumers of Upper Saddle River, N.J., and Sarah Ricks of Philadelphia.
