  1. This blog does best when it de-emphasizes news and emphasizes rumors, gossip, etc.

    1. I think the blog is doing fine how it is. I agree that the rumors and gossip are exciting, but there's only so much of that to go around. The blog has to keep putting up new content daily to stay relevant and the legal news is the best way to do that. Unless readers are willing to step up to contribute original content...

  4. I have opposing counsel whose registered email with the bar is *****@netscape.com. His partner uses an aol.com mail account and their secretary uses a hotmail.com account.

    I sh!t you not.

    1. Email elitism? Really?

    2. So, what you're saying is that opposing counsel was litigating cases back when you were popping your first pimple and worrying about getting to first base? Good luck.

    3. I hate attorneys who can't pay the $20.00 a year for a real email address. It just makes you look like an ass clown.

    4. At this point, it's vintage!

    5. One good way to tell if an attorney is over 50 is by his/her use of an aol.com e-mail address.

    6. So you are saying you think I should change my email address of the last 25 years that has been blowmewhileismokeweed@compuserve.com?

  5. I hope that Wayne guy wins. I remember I frothed at the mouth when we covered that 1L torts case with the decent property owner booby trapping his property and scumbag vagrants suing because they got hurt breaking in. I hear in Texas they just shoot, shovel and shut up rather than call the fuzz. Wayne learned his lesson!
