Letters Blogatory’s Annual Appeal for the ABA Blawg 100 Nomination

Readers, it’s time for my annual appeal for your support to keep Letters Blogatory in the ABA’s Blawg 100 listing. I promise you’ll only have to read it once! Writing for you is a labor of love, but it is nice to have the recognition of the ABA, and I’ve been fortunate enough to win it in three of the past four years.

2016 has been, so far, another good year for our project (that’s me and my collaborators, not the “royal we”). Following on the success of Cartas Blogatorias, which launched in 2014, we have just recently gotten Lettres Blogatoires off the ground, too.

Several of my most frequently read posts this year so far have been what I call “frolics and detours” that I hope are of interest even though they aren’t strictly on topic:

  • My post on PJS v. News Group Newspapers, the English invasion of privacy injunction case, which I think got a lot of readers because Google liked the fact that I quoted the judge describing the facts of the case: “the three met for a three-way sexual encounter which they duly carried out.”
  • My post on the anti-Semitic insult directed at Tzipi Livni when she spoke at Harvard Law School, and other HLS goings-on.
  • My post on the international law opinions by Judge Merrick Garland, President Obama’s nominee for appointment to the Supreme Court.
  • From the world of politics, my post on Brexit, and some commentary on the Trump phenomenon.

And of course, I’ve tried to continue bring you news you can use on international judicial assistance.

Thank you as always for reading, and please do take a minute to nominate Letters Blogatory. Thanks!
