Random Notes

Random Notes is for subjects I want to blog about or rebroadcast, but just don’t have the time to do well. They will appear on a, you guessed it, random basis:

New York AG unveils Project Sunlight, exposing the lobbyists, pork and money flows in Albany in a very user-friendly website (via NYT-CityRoom);

New York AG also confirms having no sense of humor when it comes to lawyer advertising, a fact I pointed out in March (New York Responds to Lawsuit Challenging New Attorney Advertising Rules — By Banning Humor). Now they’ve filed an appellate brief with the Second Circuit to confirm it (pp. 16-21 of brief);

The Cavalcade of Risk is up at Managed Care Matters – a round-up of insurance blogs and risky stuff;

A fountain of information on the Dickie Scruggs indictment can be found at Overlawyered and at the Insurance Coverage Law Blog;

Scott Greenfield of Simple Justice fame is interviewed at Kevin O’Keefe’s Real Lawyers Have Blogs and reveals an essential truth about blogging: The harder people try to promote themselves, the more their blogs suck. Except he said it nicer. “Nobody wants to read posts about what a wonderful lawyer you are or how brilliant you are. If you’re brilliant, show it by posting substantive pieces.” Naturally, Greenfield has a slightly different take on the interview.

Legal Antics resuscitates a 1990-1 Yale Law Journal article on why you shouldn’t go to law school (with a tip to Susan Cartier Liebel of the Build a Solo Practice)

Evan Schaeffer on how to stop coaching at depositions with the “speaking objection.”

The New York Personal Injury Law Blog is sponsored by its creator, Eric Turkewitz of The Turkewitz Law Firm. The blog might be considered a form of attorney advertising in accordance with New York rules going into effect February 1, 2007 (22 NYCRR 1200.1, et. seq.) As of July 14, 2008, Law.com became an advertiser, as you can see in the sidebar. Law.com does not control the editorial content of the blog in any way.

Throughout the blog as it develops, you may see examples of cases we have handled, or cases from others, that are used for illustrative purposes. Since all cases are different, and legal authority may change from year to year, it is important to remember that prior results in any particular case do not guarantee or predict similar outcomes with respect to any future matter, including yours, in which any lawyer or law firm may be retained.

Some of the commentary may be become outdated. Some might be a minority opinion, or simply wrong. No reader should consider this site (or any other) to be authoritative, and if a legal issue is presented, the reader should contact an attorney of his or her own choosing for advice.

Finally, we are not responsible for the comments of others that may be added to this site.
