That’s right, your very own Federal Criminal Appeals Blog is on the 2012 ABA 100 list.
Here’s what the ABA Law Journal said about the blog:
Described by fans as informative, useful and insightful with a dose of nonsnarky humor, D.C. lawyer Matt Kaiser exclusively covers cases involving defendants successful on appeal. Reader Dan Kaplan of the Federal Public Defender’s Office in Phoenix says, “I get regular summaries of criminal appellate decisions in my circuit (the 9th), but this blog supplements that with interesting decisions from other circuits. The summaries are thorough but short and very readable, and best of all, they include only defense wins. I have on a few occasions cited in briefs cases I learned about from this blog.”
This means three things:
(1) I am worried the editors at the ABA Law Journal are still drinking.
(2) I owe Dan Kaplan at least a drink (redeemable in Washington, D.C.).
(3) You can vote for this Blog to win the “Criminal Justice” category. Voting takes place here. (or you can click the big button above).
Thank you, very much, to everyone who lobbied the ABA Journal on my behalf. Thanks also to the friendly folks at the ABA Journal for reading my stuff and liking it.
