General counsel uses blog to comment on pending litigation

Mark Chandler, Cisco’s SVP and General Counsel, is making wise use of Cisco’s blog to respond to questions regarding Cisco’s suit with Apple over Cisco’s iPhone trademark. Chandler responds in a down to earth transparent fashion that’s likely to influence bloggers, mass media, and the financial community who are covering the suit.

Robert Scoble says he’s never seen blogging like this. Neither have I.

What takes me back is Scoble picking up on this unique use of a lawyer’s blog while the legal blogosphere has been silent on Chandler’s use of a blog. Are lawyers too busy blogging back and forth between themselves to appreciate the impact blogs can have when used to comment on pending litigation?
