A FINE APPELLATE VOICE, STILLED AGAIN
HOWT closed his laptop once before, back in June 2006, but returned after a hiatus, probably because he missed the experience of blogging (and the freedom that comes with making anonymous comments). Ill miss the inside stories about preposterous goof-ups by appellate litigants, and the wry commentary about law and society.
Back in 06, when I reported the initial demise of the site, I made an offer to him that Ill repeat here: If you want to write something that will be of interest to my audience, send it to me and Ill be very pleased to post it for you. And I guarantee to preserve your secret identity.
