Judges cite more blogs in rulings

The National Law Journal has a detailed article on judges citing more blogs in rulings saying that the trend is only going to grow. Arises out of Ian Best at 3L Epiphany tracking the citation of blogs.

Judges have discovered the Internet’s 600 legal blogs, citing them at least 32 times in 27 decisions over the last two years. 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain predicts the practice will continue to grow.

I am sure most judges, when they see carefully articulated logic in whatever form, in a law review or published lecture or electronic form, are inclined to evaluate it and if relevant cite it.
