As we close out the week and the first half of 2011, we have two more publications joining The LexBlog Network with each authoring firm debuting their second blogs. I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend—and that it’s as nice where you are as it is here in Seattle.
Whether it be phones, computers or even stores, someone is always trying to copy Apple’s keen sense of design. Today, Catlan McCurdy examines an example of the last item there as she compares Apple and Microsoft’s respective stores while keeping legal precedent in mind. Also, Joseph Rosenbaum has some words of wisdom for Google. Total posts on The LexBlog Network today: 172.
While it isn’t quite the 192 posts we had yesterday, the 161 posts on The LexBlog Network today are still nothing to sneeze at. We have a lot of high-level commentary, as Ryan DeMotte leads things off with some quick insight on the FTC’s antitrust investigation against Google. Also, Kevin LaCroix breaks down Bank of America’s $8.5 billion securities settlement.
Oofta. Interested in knowing the number of posts on The LexBlog Network today? That’d be 192. Definitely a record. And it isn’t just the growth in the quantity of content produced by authors on the Network, but the quality as well. It’s getting more and more difficult to select just ten of these, and even more challenging to point to just one or two in this intro. So, without further hesitation, here they are.
As is the case with most Mondays, today was a busy day on The LexBlog Network as we saw 162 posts come across the wire. I don’t mean to keep coming back to these, but we continue to see some great commentary on last week’s Supreme Court cases. Also, Keith McMurdy of Fox Rothschild breaks down what New York’s same-sex marriage law means on the employee benefits front.
Before I head off to a bizarro National League-rules game being played at Safeco Field, let’s look back at Friday’s best posts. We’ve seen a lot of dialogue lately on the environmental impact of hydraulic fracturing and it appears as though the EPA has taken notice—as Keith Hall notes that they’ve selected locations for conducting case studies on fracking’s effects on the surrounding environment. Have a great weekend, everyone.
Alright, before calling it a day and heading home let’s take a look back at Thursday’s best posts. Keith Mullen has a good look at dealing with fraud in commercial real estate, Laura Gutierrez continues to give out strong social media marketing advice and the team at IP News notes that Google may be taking yet another stab at social networking. Total posts on The LexBlog Network today: 142.
Things have calmed slightly after Monday and Tuesday as we saw just 152 posts on The LexBlog Network today. Also, while today’s roundup isn’t entirely without any SCOTUS commentary, I tried to focus on other areas a bit more this afternoon. Enjoy.
Every now and then, I walk away from the office totally and completely blown away by the quality and breadth of coverage produced by The LexBlog Network. I’m always impressed, but some days stand out more than others. Today is one of those days. Let’s start with the fact that we had 184 posts on the day. Moving on, we have Dukes v. Wal-Mart, a Supreme Court case that was featured above the fold on A1 of newspapers across the country—and no one covered it better than The LexBlog Network. We’re bumping today’s roundup to 15, leading off with a collection of the best Dukes v. Wal-Mart pieces. Enjoy.
Riding a wave of commentary on two huge Supreme Court cases, The LexBlog Network saw 164 posts come across the wire today. Those two big cases: American Elec. Power Co. v. Connecticut and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes. We have multiple posts breaking down each. Also, for a bit of humor, check out Joel Shpigel’s post today.
