Federal Judge Hangs Up His Blogging Robes, by Robert Ambrogi, Robert Ambrogi’s Law Sites


Last summer, Law Technology News published my article, Blogging From the Bench, in which I surveyed the fairly paltry number of judges who blog. In a subsequent post here, I added more blogging judges.

Prominently featured in the LTN piece was Senior U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf, who last February launched the blog Hercules and the Umpire and quickly found notoriety when he published a post in which he declared, ‘A lot of what the Supreme Court does is simply irrelevant to what federal trial judges do on a daily basis.’

Yesterday, after writing 416 posts in the last year that generated some 425,000 page views and 3,700 comments, Judge Kopf announced the end of his blog.
