How Appealing

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

A writer for another popular law blog emails:
As part of the 9th Circuit's web design, it appears all previous links to its opinions no longer work. Are you finding the same thing? If so, do you know of any way around it?
Sadly, my correspondent is correct. All links to Ninth Circuit opinions originally posted at the "How Appealing" blog between May 6, 2002 and yesterday are no longer functioning. But, on the bright side, the Ninth Circuit's web site today looks much nicer than it did yesterday.

"The Kagan File": Today at "The BLT: The Blog of Legal Times," Tony Mauro has a post that begins, "The praise coming from Harvard Law School colleagues of Elena Kagan, who was named this week to be the next solicitor general, is effusive -- and, it turns out, longstanding. In a folder in Box 571 of the Thurgood Marshall papers at the Library of Congress, one can find Kagan's 1986 application to be Marshall's law clerk, along with recommendations from five Harvard Law professors -- no one else -- as well as her resume and even her law school transcript."
