I'm So Cited, I Just Can't Hide It!

For legal bloggers, it's become the ultimate mark of cool -- to have your blog cited in a court opinion. Who rates a place on this prestigious list? Enterprising blogger Ian Best knows. He has compiled a list of cases that cite legal blogs. As of Sunday, he had found 32 citations of legal blogs from 27 different cases.

Even better than to be cited once is to be cited time and again. Only two blogs can claim that honor: Douglas A. Berman's Sentencing Law and Policy and Eugene Volokh and company's The Volokh Conspiracy. Berman is cited a remarkable 19 times -- including in a Supreme Court dissent in United States v. Booker and five federal circuit cases. Volokh is cited twice. Others of the elites are Crime & Federalism, De Novo, How Appealing, Legal Theory Blog, Patently-O and The UCL Practitioner.

Of course we must mention that two of these blogs are part of the blog network.
