From Briefs To Blogs
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.
