New daily opinion summary alerts service
In March, Justia launched a fabulous daily opinion summary service where you can receive alerts by jurisdiction or legal practice area. http://law.justia.com/subscriptions Recently, it announced that along with the United State Supreme Court and all Federal Appellate Courts, the service now includes all 50 states and over 60 legal practice areas/subjects. You can have them delivered by Facebook, Twitter, or subscribe to a blog/RSS feed. http://law.justia.com/about-daily-summaries
Eventually, they hope to include summary blogs with RSS feeds for all [U.S.] state supreme courts, the US Supreme Court and all Federal appellate courts.
According to Cicely Wilson at Justia, summaries are written by a team of 4 writers (lawyers), all of whom are bar-certified.
New website for legal commentary
Justia also recently launched Verdict, a great new website dedicated to legal analysis and commentary about a variety of issues from an interesting array of contributors including Marci Hamilton and Michael Dorf. It even includes a section with book reviews. Read more about its launch on the Justia website and check out Robert Ambrogi’s Justia launches site for legal commentary for a great description of the service. http://bit.ly/nYfi6N
