2014 ABA Blawg 100 Readers, thank you for nominating Letters Blogatory again for the ABA’s 2014 Blawg 100 list. I’m grateful to you and to the ABA Journal’s editors for helping me bring attention to the wide, wide world of international judicial assistance.

For new readers, welcome! I hope you’ll stick around for my regular features:

  • Cases of the day, covering service of process, obtaining evidence abroad, recognition and enforcement of judgments, and other private international law topics.
  • My in-depth coverage of the Chevron/Ecuador case, the biggest, baddest mass tort litigation in the world—no joke!
  • My upcoming event at Georgetown, The Hague Service Convention at 50. You can RSVP here.
  • My email newsletter, which brings Letters Blogatory to your email box almost every business day.

I’m up against some stiff competition, but I would be grateful for your vote for best blog in the niche category. Why vote for me? Consider this testimonial from long-time friend of Letters Blogatory Chad Mitchell:

Chad Mitchell of the Summit Law Group in Seattle wrote “unbelievable coverage!” about Letters Blogatory, which covers international judicial assistance in civil and commercial cases. Boston litigator Ted Folkman “doesn’t report just from the courthouse; he traveled to Ecuador to cover one of the biggest international environmental cases in history,” i.e., the Chevron/Lago Agrio litigation. “His blog is on the peak of whatever divide remains between lawyer and journalist.”

Thanks again for reading! And please check out Cartas Blogatorias, Letters Blogatory’s sister blog, which covers private international law issues in Latin America and Spain. It’s terrific!
