Connecticut Legal Bloggers Recognized Among Best in Nation

Our special thanks to Connecticut Law Tribune author Christian Nolan for his recent coverage of Connecticut legal bloggers who made it on the ABA Journal's Top 100 list.  Of the one hundred blogs honored this year, four of them were from Connecticut.  In addition to the Nutmeg Lawyer, the editors at the ABA Journal selected Ryan McKeen's  "A Connecticut Law Blog," Daniel Schwartz's "Connecticut Employment Blog" and  "A Public Defender."  The latter blog is written by a public defender somewhere deep in the halls of a Connecticut courthouse.  Known only as Gideon, the secret identity of this blogger is unknown.  Reports indicate, however, that the mythological Gideon is 10 feet tall and can acquit his clients within a single bound. CT Law Tribune subscribers can see the article here.

Considering Connecticut produces so many talented writers, I was surprised that only four Connecticut legal bloggers made the list.  Among them are blogs written by Attorney Norm Pattis
Attorney Irene Olszewski  Attorney O's Midnight Musings, Attorney Michael Keenan Connecticut Elder Law Blog, Attorney Paul Begeman Connecticut Real Estate Attorney Blog, Attorney Mark Dumas Connecticut Freedom of Information Law Blog, Dan Fitzgeralds CT Sports Law, Matthew Curtiss coverage of probate issues at, N. Kane Bennetts' Connecticut Business Litigation Blog and Attorney Dana Kaplan who writes Two Lawyers and A Bankruptcy Blog  I am sure I am missing a few more.

I extend my warmest thanks to the editors of the ABA Journal Magazine for including "The Nutmeg Lawyer" in this year's list of honorees.  (Rest assured your cat Fluffy is safe and will be returned unharmed).

Don't forget that voting is still on until December 30th for your favorite blogs.  You can vote for the Nutmeg Lawyer and others at the ABA Journal website.  We are in the IMHO category.
