Yesterday, the irreverent blog about the federal judiciary, “Underneath their Robes,” had its first new post in nearly nine months. The sole commenter takes the blogger, David Lat, to task, complaining that the self-congratulatory post referencing Lat’s article in the New York Times was an inappropriate way to end the blog’s 9-month silence. I’m surprised there are not more comments regarding the absence. Perhaps people aren’t bothering to check UTR any more. Could this new post mean it is coming back, or does it mean instead that we’ll get a new post only when Lat wants to plug one of his articles?
