Blawg Tracks Circuit Splits in Search of Issues Bound for Supreme Court

As anyone who made it through law school knows, a split of opinion among the federal circuit courts is a strong indicator that the issue will make its way to the Supreme Court. A new blog, CircuitSplits.com, is dedicated to providing timely reporting and analysis of circuit splits. It is written by Nicholas J. Wagoner, an associate with the Houston law firm Rogers, Morris & Grover.

If you decide to visit the blog, I recommend you read his series of three posts from December in which he explains why circuit splits matter and are newsworthy (and blog-worthy). He also has a useful post on how to research circuit splits using terms and connectors.

There is at least one other blog about circuit splits, Split Circuits, written by A. Benjamin Spencer, a professor at Washington & Lee University School of Law.
