Federal district judge cites to blog

Is this a first? In Massachusetts, U.S. District Chief Judge William G. Young cites to a blog in an opinion issued Jan. 7. Addressing his own fallibility as a judge, Judge Young quotes the lyrics to the satirical song “Appointed Forever,” by the Bar and Grill Singers, and as authority for his quotation cites to this April 16, 2003, posting by Temple University Law Professor David G. Post on The Volokh Conspiracy.
