In recognition of the importance of the blogosphere, the University of Cincinnati Law Review now also has a blog. Here’s a statement from the Review:
“The University of Cincinnati Law Review Blog was founded in 2013 in recognition of the fact that legal scholarship has taken to the blogs. The goal of the blog is to further legal scholarship through shorter, quicker, discussion-based discourse. Contributors in the legal community post on current topics and their experience with practical applications of everyday legal issues. Student Law Review members post condensed, accessible articles on a variety of legal issues and explore the practical implications of today’s legal landscape.”
Some students are choosing to blog on Supreme Court of Ohio decisions that have been analyzed on our Legally Speaking Ohio blog. When this happens, I will add a link to the student article. This will provide my blog readers with another set of insights.
Here are two such law review posts to start us out:
2L Ryan Shiverdecker’s post, Ducking Duties: Pseudonymous Plaintiffs and the Supreme Court of Ohio analyzes Doe v. Bruner, a case dismissed as improvidently granted shortly after it was argued. The issue was whether and when a litigant may use a pseudonym in civil litigation—in this case, a number of intentional tort claims arising out of alleged sex abuse.
3L Chris Tieke’s post, No More Horsing Around with the Ohio Revised , argues that the Supreme Court of Ohio has set a common approach to interpreting statutorily created torts and immunities, using the case of Smith v. Landfair, 2012-Ohio-5692 as the focus of his analysis. Landfair involved the interpretation of R.C. 2305.321, the Ohio Equine Immunity statute, which grants immunity for certain equine-related activities.
