So we are going to be compiling a daily list of our favorite crazy news and legal updates.

It will be updated constantly throughout the day, so check in often.


From news of the weird to law firm gossip and pop culture craziness, we will link to it all here.


Think Progress (http://thinkprogress.org/2006/05/24/delay-colb ert/) has a story that confounds the senses. Tom DeLay’s legal defense fund send out a mass email praising Comedy Central satirist Steven Colbert, whose faux-conservative television character praised Tom DeLay and bashed a new film that purports to expose DeLay’s corruption.

Perhaps the DeLay camp missed the White House Press Correspondents Dinner where Colbert lambasted Bush to his face.

At any rate, it’s good to see that DeLay has allies on his side even if they are slightly fictional.


Cheers to Daniel Solove, purported to be the first blogger to publish a blog post as a law review article. Earlier this month, Solove, of PrawfsBlawg (http://prawfsblawg.blogs.com), penned a piece (http://prawfsblawg.blogs.com/prawfsblawg/2005/ 05/the_bar_exam_as.html) about how the Multistate Bar Exam is the most widely read piece of legal writing. The humorous piece was then published in the Michigan Law Review, which, according to the Volokh Conspiracy’s (www.volokh.com) Orrin Kerr (http://www.orinkerr.com/) effectively answers “Can law blogs be scholarly?” with a resounding maybe.


So Enron's Jeffrey Skilling and Kenneth Lay are soon to be the smartest guys in minimum security prison. Maybe the verdict isn't all that shocking, but it is hopefully a little gratifying to all the people who were ripped off by Enron.

Professor Bainbridge (http://www.professorbainbridge.com/) has devoted his law blog to analyzing the verdict. He notes that, like Martha Stewart, Lay and Skilling got in trouble not for breaking the law but for lying about breaking the law.

The Wall Street Journal Law Blog (http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2006/05/25/lay/) says Lay's real downfall was acting like such a jerk on the witness stand. If he had taken a little responsibility for the collapse of Enron, they might have cut him some slack.

The Sentencing Law and Policy Blog (http://sentencing.typepad.com/sentencing_law_a nd_policy/2006/05/firstcut_enron_.html) offers up that Lay and Skilling could get 360 to life!


Here is some unsubstantiated gossip delivered to de Judge from a top-secret source. According to the word on the street, Cox Smith Matthews Incorporated raised its associate salaries across the board by $20,000. First year associates now earn $120,000 per year. The change will take effect June 1.

Cox Smith Matthews is the largest firm in San Antonio, with 120 lawyers in four offices that also include Austin, Dallas and McAllen.
