and I don't want to post any more decisions today. The whole reading every decision and posting the interesting one becomes mind-numbing after a while. My brain is mush as it is.
Every once in a while I check to see how everyone is getting here. For the most part, you all get here by searching some section or rule. Many of you are from big firms (good for you). Others stumble over here from my no-fault blog (really, you want a double dose of my crap?). And the rest are my devoted readers. All five of you. Almost none of you stay more than a couple of minutes. Many of you, especially the fancy pants biglaw types1, click out of here just as soon as you get here. This has nothing to do with anything. I thought some of you might be interested, and if not, I'm glad I able to take a couple of seconds of your life away.
The New York State Bar Association Committee on Civil Practice Law and Rules, for those don't know, is a fun (yes, fun) resource. You can find recent changes to the rules and case law developments. That latter is like this blog, but different. The meeting minutes makes for a good read too. I spent an hour or so reading them the other night. Good times. If you are a member of the committee, please fix the link for the September 11, 2009 minutes. The link isn't working. I'm probably the only one who cares about that, but, hey, at least someone cares.
I'm considering putting up a donations thing. This way you can give me money. You will get nothing in return. I won't promise that I will spend the money on one thing or another. I'm just as likely to spend it on diapers (not for me) as I am to spend it on booze (for me). It's really just a fantasy.
For those of you who pay attention to what I'm reading, I'm still reading that Gulag book. I don't know why it is taking me so long to read, but it's a really good book. Eye opening.
Finally, we have an honest to god SEARCH button now. It should be much better than the mini google search I've been using. It's over on the right somewhere.
One last thing. Scalia says hi.
1. At least one or two of you people must be a partner, so where's my offer for one of those $200,000.00 a year jobs. I'm better than worthless (click the link, it will all make sense).
