Update on proposed New York anti-law-blog bill

Today’s New York Law Journal has an article on the proposed new regulations that would destroy the use of the Internet by lawyers, stating that most of the bar groups commenting on them consider them too broad or worse. It makes reference to a magnum opus on the topic by real estate attorney Joshua Stein, whose down to earth site does not necessarily scream, “Latham & Watkins partner” — but that’s what he is.

The bad news? The Law Journal also quotes First Amendment Expert Floyd Abrams, who calls the new rules unconstitutional and threatens that he’ll litigate over them if he has to. Let’s hope to Heaven it doesn’t come to that.

UPDATE: Joshua Stein pointed me to this article on the topic in the New York Sun.
