Here is a nice little tale that comes to us from Carolyn Elefant at MyShingle. The story is about a solo practitioner who took on a 4-attorney team and won a $4.7 million verdict. He defended a grandma who was swindled by her former attorney out of house and home.

The story got some ink last month and was featured in the L.A. Daily Record. Now Carolyn Elefant has an exclusive interview with the David of this story, Scott P. Schomer of Torrance, California. Check it out here http://www.myshingle.com/my_shingle/2006/05/so lo_wins_a_47_.html

Lawyers constitute 1% of the U.S. population

Still, lawyers constitute over 6% of bloggers

57% of attorneys polled by the ABA read at least one blog a day

19% of those polled are working on their own blog

A debate has been going on over at Point of Law over whether or not it's necessary to license attorneys.

The argument began on Ideoblog. The New York Times reported about an Ohio man who sued the school board over the education of his autistic son. He represented himself and won a $160,000 verdict. The Cleveland Bar Association wanted a piece of the action and sued for $10,000. Though the bar association dropped the case, the story sparked a post on Ideoblog on how laypersons can represent themselves in court as readily as some attorneys. So why bother with the whole licensure procedure?

Over at Point of Law, they disagreed for all the obvious reasons. Licensing attorneys preserves the court system, prevents legal malpractice, and ensures moral character and technical proficiency. Ideoblog countered that the cost of getting an attorney through law school and licensed is what drives the price of legal assistance through the roof.

A Wall Street Journal poll on the same topic found a majority of respondents feel lawyers must be licensed.

Massachusetts' Supreme Judicial Court ruled against tobacco giant Philip Morris yesterday in a landmark case. Philip Morris tried to say that they weren't liable for cancer deaths caused by cigarettes because anybody who would smoke a cigarette knowing all the health risks is just plain crazy.

The judge wasn't hearing it and ruled that the company cannot be shielded from liability by claiming their customers acted unreasonably.

This setback for cigarette manufacturers comes on the heels of a victory. Last week, the Oregon Court of Appeals vacated a $150 million jury verdict against the Philip Morris.

So it's been a few months since the celebrity blogger known as Anonymous Lawyer was unmasked. http://anonymouslawyer.blogspot.com/

He's now turned his blog into a novel, Anonymous Lawyer: The Novel. His blog is pretty funny. If that's any indication, the novel could be good. According to people who read the manuscript, the whole thing is in blog form with no narrative.

I guess this could be the big trend for law bloggers, turning their modest Internet notoriety into lucrative book deals.
