Former U.S. attorney achieves blog fame

The Wonkette, a racy and gossip-filled political blog, is one of the better known blogs in the country. It’s publisher Ana Marie Cox has moved on to publish a book that will soon be produced as a movie – all about her blogging exploits.

Taking her place will be David Lat, a 30-year-old lawyer who anonymously wrote the irreverent legal blog Underneath Their Robes. Lat just resigned from his job in the US Attorney’s office in Newark last week.

Looks like Lat’s identifying particular judges as babes and hunks on a blog did more for his career than motion and brief writing. It’s not every law blog that has a title tag reading “Politics for People with Dirty Minds.”
