    Non-Sequiturs: 04.01.13

What possible moral wackadoodle says that it’s okay to have something like the Jersey Shore (the place, not just the TV show), but you can’t take Michigan to out-shoot the Syracuse zone and then break Louisville’s legs. [Legal Blitz]

    * Cloud tools for lawyers. Or as partners understand them: “Newfangled virtual file cabinets.” [Smart File Blog]

    * Pro se prisoner wins! He probably wouldn’t have had he consulted a lawyer. [Simple Justice]

    Non-Sequiturs: 07.07.11

    * Florida gets a lot of flak, but the state seems to be doing something right with respect to defamation lawsuits. [The Legal Satyricon] * “How is law school like the NFL draft?” (Aside from the high risk of getting your brains scrambled.) [Freakonomics] * Let’s “think the unthinkable” about the legal profession in 2020, […]
