It’s s another pleasant Friday afternoon in Seattle, and just only because tonight brings the Major League debut of Seattle Mariners super-prospect Dustin Ackley. But before I head to the ballpark, we of course have to look at everyone joining The LexBlog Network this week. We have the debut of two new publications along with a great site we’ve been working on for a long time and are especially proud of. Have a great weekend everyone
Due to a late-afternoon meeting and then a team LexBlog softball game (unfortunately, we got smoked), this is coming to you much later than normal. Because we’re so late, we’re just going to jump right into the day’s bests. Total posts on The LexBlog Network today: 151.
A bright and sunny day in Seattle brings 138 posts to The LexBlog Network. In one of my favorite pieces of the day, the always-great Max Kennerly has some very opinionated comments on a few recent Supreme Court decisions. Excellent stuff.
Tuesday brings 160 posts on The LexBlog Network with a couple highlights coming from class action attorneys Kirk Jenkins and Andrew Trask. Also, John Lacey continues to break down prominent data breaches, of which there are many.
Whether it be in regards to privacy, employment, advertising or any other number of countless topics, the amount of conversation I’ve seen on The LexBlog Network on the legal implications of social networking is almost staggering. That said, it appears the best may be yet to come with the team at InformationLawGroup kicking off what, based on what the first posts has to offer, may be the most in-depth writing on the subject I’ve seen yet.

It was another phenomenal week for The LexBlog Network as we added four new publications in four different practice areas. Along with the new blogs, we also have two of the Network’s absolute best publications—arguably two of the very strongest blogs out there on their respective subjects—getting revamped a bit. Have a look around; whether new or old to the Network, this is a group of exceptionally talented lawyers.
I’ve spent the week working remotely from Missoula, MT, where flooding—although not nearly as bad as other places—has threatened the homes of residents who live alongside the normally tame and relatively shallow Clark Fork River. Today, Sean Minahan highlights a much more dire situation, where the Army Corps of Engineers is rumored to be considering purposefully breaching a dike to prevent catastrophic flooding in metropolitan Omaha, NE and instead flooding thousands of acres of farmland to the north of the city.

In reviewing the content produced across The LexBlog Network on a daily basis for close to three years, I feel as though I’ve developed the ability to identify strong publications early on. From the very beginning, you could get the sense that John Lacey’s Massachusetts Data Privacy Law Blog would do well and it has. Jason Shinn’s relatively young Michigan Employment Law Advisor also comes to mind. At this point, Wystan Ackerman’s Insurance Class Actions Insider belongs in that discussion of new blogs you know will end up being looked to as very credible sources; this is one any insurance professional should keep an eye on. Total posts on The LexBlog Network today: 152.
Today was slightly calmer than normal as the count for posts on The LexBlog Network dips slightly to 122. That said, we still have some strong commentary, especially on the employment side of things. For those of you who haven’t seen it, be sure to check out the new-look Connecticut Employment Law Blog.
As an individual with a journalism background, I’m strongly opposed to any rule or law that prevents the media—or any regular citizen for that matter—from reporting events that deserve to be reported and holding individuals accountable for their actions. So, it generates some amount of concern that exercising one’s right to record the police may lead to an arrest in some instances, as Elizabeth Spainhour writes on today. Total posts on The LexBlog Network for the day: 146.
