Judicial Blogger No Longer Anonymous

This morning I came across the news on The Drudge Report that the anonymous blogger behind the Underneath Their Robes judicial gossip site has been outed by The New Yorker and the website has vanished.

I wasn't quite sure what I thought of the site -- sometimes it was interesting, but sometimes over the top in its content -- and had never linked to it here.

Other bloggers have lost their jobs after being found out by their employers. Be interesting to hear further developments, if any.

Update: The New York Times has more. Apparently the blog's author, David Lat, decided to cooperate with The New Yorker as he was ready to take public credit for his work.

Not yet explained is why the site vanished.

Probably because he has a book deal.

That's a good theory! We shall see what develops --
