Welcome back! This is our 8th year (if you count the past year, in which we posted nothing, except to our facebook page).
You may notice the new format here on WordPress, and the new url. If you go to the old url, you will be redirected here (thanks, Tom).
Want old posts? We may put a few best-of up here. Otherwise, try to remember a few details and we may be able to dig up the text from our personal archives.
Is there still a need for court-o-rama? That’s a good question, one we’ve asked ourselves over the past year. The answer is yes. Too many blogs highlight wacky cases, while very few look at court administration. However, these two realms overlap all the time — witness the case of former Judge Tracie Hunter, or the internationally (in)famous Kentucky clerk Kim Davis. In both instances, race, sex, and religion trumped boring old court administration facts. Plus, we know you want to hear about haunted courthouses every Halloween, and probate court weddings every Valentine’s Day.
So there you have it. We’re here, we’re back, we’re ready to blog. Send us your stories, feedback, and if the freelance fashion blogger who contacted us (yes, that really happened) has the scoop on judicial robes (why are Maryland’s a different color?), we’d love to know about it.
