Yesterday, Law Technology News featured my article, Blogging from the Bench, a survey of present and former judges who write blogs. It grew out of an earlier post here. Since the story appeared yesterday, I have learned of three more judges who blog regularly. They are:
- Ohio Supreme Court Justice Judith Lanzinger writes Justice Judy, a blog geared towards educating middle and high school students about law, civics and the judicial system. Justice Lanzinger, who started her blog in 2010, appears to be the only state supreme court justice in the U.S. to write a blog.
- Another Ohio judge writes Judge James Kimbler’s Blog, in which Medina County Common Pleas Judge Kimbler reports on Ohio court decisions and writes about the law and the Medina County court. Roughly once a week, he publishes summaries of opinions from Ohio’s Ninth District Court of Appeals. Judge Kimbler’s blog, which he launched in 2006, was recently featured in an article in Court News Ohio.
- Emily Jane Goodman, who retired last year after 20 years as a New York Supreme Court justice, is a sporadic contributor to The Huffington Post. Her last contribution, in February, was a post about abortion co-written with Merle Hoffman.
Also, by way of update, my article mentions Massachusetts federal judge Nancy Gertner, who briefly wrote for Slate’s now-defunct Convictions blog in 2008. Earlier this week, Gertner posted a contribution to Cognoscenti, a blog by Boston public radio station WBUR, titled, “How Can A Lawyer Represent You Without Speaking Up?“
