Tommy Goldstein's incredibly useful blog SCOTUSblog.com was the first blog discussed in the National Journal's article about lawyers' blogs. The following paragraph is an excerpt form the article:

At the U.S. Supreme Court, Tom Goldstein's blog is a popular read. The Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld partner doesn't know exactly who inside the marbled walls is reading his online forum, SCOTUS Blog. But Goldstein knows that hundreds of hits a day are coming from the Supreme Court building.

The four-year-old SCOTUS Blog has become an inside-the-Beltway favorite among lawyers, professors, journalists, and perhaps even Supreme Court justices. Written by Goldstein, who heads Akin Gump's Supreme Court practice, and four other lawyers and a reporter, the blog offers information on scheduled arguments; transcripts of oral arguments; the court's latest orders, grants, and decisions; analysis of arguments and decisions; and the most-recent news. It also serves as a hub for online discussions.
