Case Summaries Discontinued

As these summaries are distributed via email, it has been determined--due to workload and duplication of effort--that only cases deemed of exceptional importance will be posted here.

It has been suggested that instead of email, the summaries be posted here only, but there has been no push to implement that idea as of yet.

Comments regarding the specifics of this posting are welcome, as well as comments on the usefulness of the blog itself. Here is the big question:

Do you use the Eighth Circuit Blog regularly? Occasionally? Almost never?

I would venture a guess, but I don't want to skew the results of this informal poll.

Thanks for your comments.

I would read the Blog (and would prefer it to emails) if it were timely updated.

Hi! We came across your blawg and thought that your readers might be interested in our website, The Robing Room provides an open forum where lawyers and others can rate Federal judges. (We’re currently expanding to include state judges as well.) Why not stop on by and give us your two cents’ worth about your favorite – or least favorite – judges? We’d be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have. Just email us at or call us at 718-766-8807. We’re looking forward to hearing what you have to say!

From an FPD in another circuit, the blog is much easier than emails to find out what is relevant in other districts.

If there's a way for new e-mail subscribers to get old summaries, then e-mail isn't so bad, otherwise a blog is better for sure.

And about the above ad for therobingroom website, Google occasionally warns about that site in its results, and once I went there and my AV software caught something. If people want good reviews of judges they should look in the Almanac of the Federal Judiciary.
