We interrupt our regularly scheduled posting to note that this is SDNY Blog post number 1,001. Thanks to co-bloggers Michael Keough and Jason Meade for their contributions, and the wonderful team at Steptoe for supporting our blog.
A few additional statistics:
- The blog was started in April 2012.
- The most frequently-tagged judge has been Judge Rakoff (86) — perhaps because of his long hours — followed by (now retired) Judge Forrest (65) and Judge Furman (60).
- The most frequently tagged subjects have been Securities/Securities Fraud (119), Class Actions (104), and Antitrust (54).
Finally, below are links to a sampling of the more notable (or amusing) news items covered by the Blog:
- Judge Jones concluding that the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional, a ruling later upheld by the Supreme Court.
- Judge Scheindlin striking down New York City’s “stop-and-frisk” practices as unconstitutional.
- Judge Pauley bemoaning overly long pleadings.
- Judge Berman politely declining to autograph a Sports Illustrated magazine about the New England Patriots’ “Deflategate” controversy, which was the subject of litigation before him.
- Judge Furman striking a citizenship question from the census, a ruling later upheld by the Supreme Court.
- Judge Marrero upholding a subpoena from the Manhattan DA’s Office for tax records from former President Trump.
- Judge McMahon issuing pithy letter endorsements.
We look forward to the next 1,000 posts!
