There's a new legal blog on the block: Nota Bene. It promises to focus on "criminal and appellate law." It's proprietor is Jeff Lewis, who used to run The SoCalLawBlog (now defunct). Jeff says: "You will probably find less posts about OJ Simpson and Greg Haidl and more posts about legal decisions and criminal law."
Jeff and I have been blogging friends for a long time. I encourage you to go check out Nota Bene, and I wish Jeff the best of luck with his new endeavor.
