Two Blogs To Read

Letters Blogatory readers may be interested in two new blogs I recently discovered.

First is the International Technology Law Blog, written by Chris Neumeyer of Asia Law, a Taipei law firm. The blog got started in May 2012, and Chris has already covered two issues of interest to Letters Blogatory readers: service of process by Fedex in Taiwan (an issue I covered in my post on SignalQuest v. Chou); and a two-part series on taking depositions in Asia (here is part 2). Because Chris’s blog is topically relevant to Letters Blogatory, I’ve put it on the blogroll.

The second new blog, The Collection Gap, is written by two of my law school classmates, Martin Pritikn, associate professor of law at Whittier Law School, and Ezra Ross, assistant professor of lawyering skills at UC Irvine. The blog has a very narrow but very timely focus: underenforcement and undercollection of civil, criminal, and regulatory fines in the United States. The blog stems from the authors’ article, The Collection Gap: Underenforcement of Corporate and White Collar Fines and Penalties, 29 Yale L. & Policy Rev. 453 (2011).

Happy reading!

Update: Unfortunately, the links to Chris’s blog are dead.

One thought on “Two Blogs To Read

  1. Thanks, Ted. Much appreciated. To be honest, I don’t recall learning about letters rogatory before moving to Taiwan, twelve years ago, or perhaps it was mentioned in my Civ Pro class but I didn’t pay sufficient attention because it seemed so complex and obscure. But living overseas, representing global companies in international litigation, the subject comes up all the time. And it’s not obscure at all, but very real, relevant and critical. However, it IS complex and even the diplomatic officers often appear confused by the process, so your blog provides an extremely valuable and important service. Thanks a lot. Chris
