Wayne County, Indiana lawyer, Tom Kemp, notes Indiana Law Blog author Marcia Oddi has been give an award by the Indiana Judges Association for outstanding legal journalism.
From the Indiana Courts’ press release:
Marcia J. Oddi, publisher of The Indiana Law Blog, will receive the media award. The Indiana Law Blog is a web log devoted to providing information on Indiana court decisions and other legal developments. Judge David Chidester of Porter Superior Court nominated Ms. Oddi for providing citizens with an up-to-date capsule of all matters involving Indiana law. Ms. Oddi has published The Indiana Law Blog since 2002.
Marcia’s blog was one of the blogs that drew me to law blogs. A well written blog showcasing a lawyer’s passion and skill. Seemed common sense to me back in ’03 that legal blogs were destined to grow.
