Another day, another self-titled blog. Today we have Allison Leotta, who is a novelist and former federal sex crimes prosecutor. Most of her posts are critiques of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” where she breaks down each episode and discusses it from the perspective of a sex crimes prosecutor. I know I appreciate law-related shows a lot more when they get stuff right, and it’s interesting to see someone’s take on what SVU is getting right and wrong when it comes to investigating and prosecuting these kinds of crimes.

I did not know that the Cockle Law Brief Printing Company was the largest producer of U.S. Supreme Court briefs. I did know, however, that a cocklebur is a pesky plant that sticks on your socks, having been the recipient of many of them.

In addition to posting links to recent merits briefs they have filed, they also upcoming cases as well as current cases before the Supreme Court.
