Legal News in one place

As a practicing attorney I am continually struggling to keep up with the latest in the legal blogosphere. RSS readers are great, but many of us need something less cumbersome and more easily glanced-at (often on a firm computer!). I put together a simple river-of-news style page that continually updates throughout the day with the latest news from some of the most popular legal blogs. No ads or attempts at monetization, I just found it helpful and hope someone else can too.

Demon in a Bottle: The Dukes/Nutt Affair

Uniontown’s Dukes/Nutt affair has all the elements of a lurid daytime soap: the sexually explicit letter calling a beloved daughter’s honour into question; the outraged father gunned down while challenging his daughter’s despoiler; his killer walking free from court; lynch mobs baying in the streets; riots and a fleeing jury; the dead man’s son taking deadly revenge; high rhetoric at the boy’s trial and a determined bending of the law to ensure he escaped punishment; an innocent woman shot in the violent aftermath; and a prison sentence cut short by friends in the governor’s mansion. All this played out in Pennsylvania and Kansas between 1882 and 1903. It’s the subject of PlanetSlade’s first major essay for over two years, and you can read the full story here. [more inside]

The Disability Integration Act of 2015

The Disability Integration Act establishes in Federal law that people with disabilities have the right to choose to receive services in community settings where they are in control, rather than being forced into institutions just because that is where States and insurance companies primarily and by default offer the services that people with disabilities need.

A Privacy Policy Generator for Mobile Apps

Privacy policies now are actually required across app stores and people are risking fines and being sued for not complying with the COPPA. So iubenda makes it really easy to comply with these requirements. (it's not just California btw. but California makes it clear that any app that is geared towards Californians, falls under their regulation).
Btw. we're always happy receiving feedback through the site, @iubenda or on here as well. :)

Legal Tilt is (back) on the net with old and new stories

Ages ago (1998 to be precise) there was a website called Legal Tilt that documented the inside story of life as a lawyer. It grew, became a book, then completely disappeared. Well, the whole thing is being re-kindled as a blog with old stories from the archive and (eventually) some new stories. Why would anyone want to read about a bunch of lawyers? Check it out and see.
