The Supreme Court of Vermont Law Blog: An on-going conversation about the practice of law in Vermont, featuring summaries of Vermont Supreme Court decisions, a dollop of lampooning, legal analysis, and a charming aggregation of creative thought.
With today's post, we have now put up summaries of every single published opinion and entry order that the Vermont Supreme Court issued in 2011. There were 138 numbered decisions last year and with the appointment of Justice Robinson this fall, there is no reason to believe that there will be any fewer this coming year.
As you have probably noticed, our entries as of late have primarily been case summaries. When we started this blog in September 2010, we announced that our main goal would be to provide witty, short, and above-all readable summaries of Vermont Supreme Court cases. That remains our primary purpose and reason for wasting your time. For those that have missed or prefer our "lifestyle" entries, take heart. We anticipate several of these returning in 2012---if only to get them out before the great Mayan gods return to end the whole world in December.
All this is to say, thank you for reading and supporting the blog. We appreciate everyone who has commented either here, on our Vt. Digger cross-posts, or to any of us personally. We hope you will continue to enjoy our blog and tell your friends what's hip. And we look forward to another year of legal issues and fun from the fabulous five from Montpelier!
If you have not already signed up, there is still time to sign up for the Vermont Young Lawyer's Division's Mid-Winter Thaw in Montreal. The VBA Hotel block is filling up, but a few rooms remain (for the incredibly cheap price of $129 a night!!).
This year features Willem Lange as the keynote speaker. Willem has promised to drop his folksy tales of New England for a down and dirty account of his time at the Chelsea Hotel and affair with Janis Joplin.
It is a cannot-miss event.
We are also told there will be an abundance of CLE credits and a chance to rub elbows with all your fellow practitioners.
Don't be the only one left in the states. Sign up here, now.
