THE LARGEST COLLECTION OF LEGAL JOBS ON EARTH
INSIDE LEGAL BLOGS AND CHAT BOARDS SPONSORED BYJUDGED
Inside Legal Blogs [By The Judge] Hi, folks. On August 1, Ann Althouse blogged on the Minneapolis bridge collapse. She wrote that watching the coverage on Fox News made her think “there must be a news policy not to talk about terrorism except as fed information from the Department of Homeland Security.” However, homeland security does not rely only upon the department; it is the duty of every lawyer to sue for compensation whenever safety is breached. I also have to say I share the sentiments of David Nieporent, who posted on Overlawyered at 7:01 a.m. on August 1, “The first trial lawyer Google ad soliciting clients relating to the Minneapolis bridge collapse is already up—indeed, was up as of last night. Makes me proud to be a lawyer.” Really proud.
