With Colin O’Keefe in transit over the holiday weekend, I’m covering the best in the LexBlog Network from rainy Missoula, Montana. That’s right, it’s December 30, and instead of the typical snowy, frozen tundra that accompanies winter in Montana, we’re getting rained on. Fortunately the posts keep coming in, no matter the weather. Today’s top stories include William McGrath wrapping up his take on the top securities litigation developments in 2011, and the folks over at DuetsBlog examine a marketing “kerfuffle.” Also, if you haven’t yet, you should hop over to LXBN where there’s a great episode of LXBN TV with Peter Vogel discussing the Phonedog Twitter follower lawsuit. Happy New Year!
