In last month's post "Trial Blogging," I wrote:
Has any lawyer ever composed a weblog about an ongoing trial, updating the trial’s progress with daily posts? I’m aware of only one example, which is happening right now in the case of US v. Oracle. The blog’s author, Gary Reback, who is watching the trial on behalf of Peoplesoft, started the blog because he wasn’t satisfied with the newspaper reporting about the trial.
Web sites dedicated to a specific trial are ushering in a new era of client service, said Denise M. Howell, a Web log booster and intellectual property litigator who is of counsel to the Los Angeles office of Reed Smith.
"Not only is it critical to know who will try your case," Howell said. "It's important to consider who will 'blog' it."
It's an interesting article, and provides further evidence that blogs may be coming to a trial near you. (Thanks to The Blawg Channel for the link.)
