Judge Corrects His Opinion

This is newsworthy: Howard Bashman’s blog has become even more influential. Turns out that a judge issued an opinion on Tuesday; Howard noted in passing that one of the footnotes appeared to be in error. On Wednesday, the Judge issued an amended opinion with a correction of the footnote in question, followed up by an e-mail to Howard thanking him for the catch.

Others have picked up on this, noting that this is a pretty incredible demonstration of how a blog can impact “real-world” events.

If anyone from the legal press is reading this, make sure you pick this up.
