Welcoming the Weekend
Friday is here, my friends! Though the pandemic is preventing most of us from doing much, the downtime is still happily welcome. I dare say it is vital in these days of working from home when the lines between home and office are so easily blurred, crossed, and even obliterated. The rules of work-life balance apply now more than ever. So set yourselves some boundaries and enjoy some of the weekend ahead. Today's highlights speak for themselves. Take them in before you take off.
Bob Ambrogi brings some very interesting news today on the latest offering from ROSS Intelligence. This one is browser based and sounds pretty cool. Bob writes, "The legal research company ROSS Intelligence today introduced an extension for the Chrome web browser that lets you highlight text anywhere online and search for related legal authority." He puts it to the test and relays his findings in: Find Legal Authority For Any Text On The Web With Chrome Extension from ROSS. I look forward to trying this one out myself!
PACER Takes Another Punch
If you've been following the on-going saga of PACER and its potentially misdirected proceeds, Jacqueline Thomsen and Amanda Bronstad of Law.com have an update for you. Perhaps this one was predictable. They write, "A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld a district court's finding that the federal judiciary had improperly covered certain expenses with PACER fees in a class action lawsuit challenging the user fees charged for access to court records." Ouch! Get all the details in: Appeals Court Rules Federal Judiciary Misused PACER Fees in Class Action Suit.
