Last week, we received a bit of good news! After all the votes were tabulated, for the third consecutive year, Abnormal Use won the popular vote for the Torts category in the ABA Journal‘s 6th Annual Blawg 100. Back in November, we were named one of the top 100 legal blogs by the editors of the ABA Journal, and as a part of that, we were placed into a category with four other well regarded Torts blogs, including our friends Walter Olson of Overlawyered, and Jim Beck, Will Sachse and Steve McConnell of the Drug and Device Law blog.
It was a privilege just to be included in that list. As we’ve said time and time again, Walter and the Drug and Device Law guys inspired us to start this blog back in the day.
After publishing their list, the editors of the ABA Journal asked readers to vote upon their favorite blogs in each category. We did a little campaigning, and the polls closed on December 21. You can see the final results in each category here. (We also congratulate friend of the blog Kevin Underhill of the Lowering the Bar blog for once again winning the popular vote in the “For Fun” category).
We urge you to check out some of the other blawgs on the ABA Journal‘s list. Through this annual process, we have discovered some of our own personal favorites. Plus, it’s nice to see some fine sites receive well deserved recognition, including Jeff Richardson’s iPhone J.D. blog, the great Law and the Multiverse blog, and even Maxwell Kennerly’s plaintiff-friendly Litigation & Trial blog.
We couldn’t have won it without the support of you, our dear readers. Thanks again for voting for us, and of course, thanks for continuing to read our site!
