Justice Kennedy was talking about how law review case comments generally come out too late to be of use to the Court (especially in the context of deciding whether to grant certiorari in a case). As a result, when Justice Kennedy asks his clerks to look to see what the law reviews have said about a particular case, there isn’t any commentary yet. Justice Kennedy adds: “I’ve found, what my clerks do now, when they have interesting cases — They read blogs.”
And this is why I blog 🙂
Also, Justice Kennedy had a SCOTUS first in Citizens United v. FEC, as he was the first Justice to use the word “blog” in an opinion. He also mentioned Youtube.com.
Let’s hope Justice Kennedy knows what a pager is.
