About This Blog
This blog is for people who are passionate about the law, particularly appellate law, but who don’t always have the time or inclination to read tomes or treatises on the subject. The passion of which I speak is the kind that makes every new legal problem interesting, if not downright fascinating, no matter how small or insignificant the case may otherwise seem. In short, this blog is for people who love the law and love to think about the law, both broadly and deeply.
The foci of this blog are substantive and geographic. Anything legal goes, but the blog will tend to focus on cases in the jurisdictions in which I practice, chiefly Connecticut and the Second Circuit. Of course, withholding comment on interesting cases from other jurisdictions, especially the United States Supreme Court, may prove impossible.
Like a good oral argument before a “hot” appellate bench, I hope the posts in this blog will provoke thoughtful conversation. Your comments and reactions will be integral to the success of this blog.
Last but not least, a few disclaimers are in order. I have been a practicing lawyer for nearly 25 years, and I’m proud to practice with a terrific firm and great colleagues, but the views and opinions expressed in this blog are strictly my own. Moreover, nothing here is intended as legal advice or to establish an attorney-client relationship.
