Letters Blogatory readers may be interested in two new blogs I recently discovered.
First is the International Technology Law Blog, written by Chris Neumeyer of Asia Law, a Taipei law firm. The blog got started in May 2012, and Chris has already covered two issues of interest to Letters Blogatory readers: service of process by Fedex in Taiwan (an issue I covered in my post on SignalQuest v. Chou); and a two-part series on taking depositions in Asia (here is part 2). Because Chris’s blog is topically relevant to Letters Blogatory, I’ve put it on the blogroll.
The second new blog, The Collection Gap, is written by two of my law school classmates, Martin Pritikn, associate professor of law at Whittier Law School, and Ezra Ross, assistant professor of lawyering skills at UC Irvine. The blog has a very narrow but very timely focus: underenforcement and undercollection of civil, criminal, and regulatory fines in the United States. The blog stems from the authors’ article, The Collection Gap: Underenforcement of Corporate and White Collar Fines and Penalties, 29 Yale L. & Policy Rev. 453 (2011).
Update: Unfortunately, the links to Chris’s blog are dead.
