Legally Ginger: Local’s Resident Redheads “Sneak” Into The NYU Law Library

NYULocal – “Vanderbilt Hall, home of NYU Law School, has always struck us as being oddly out of place. Its quaint brick courtyard framed by wrought iron gates and redbrick archways is something out of Princeton or Harvard; there’s a definite Ivy League feel. But there’s just one problem- the school’s library is notoriously hard to get into. We had to try. But how?”

Judge Hears Arguments on Mandatory E-Filing

Courthouse News – ” No decision was reached in a hearing on a slew of motions in the class action against LexisNexis Courtlink and Fulton County, challenging mandatory electronic filings of lawsuits through the private company. Filings at the heart of the Feb. 21 hearing were Fulton County’s request for summary judgment based on sovereign immunity, and plaintiffs’ attorney Steven Newton’s requests to add Fulton County clerks to the list of defendants, and to add three class representatives as plaintiffs.”

(Note: LexisNexis Courtlink is not a private company. It is a division of LexisNexis, itself a subsidiary of Reed Elsevier, a public company)

Athena’s Library, The Quirky Pillar Of Providence

NPR – “With a bit of reverence, librarians carefully wind an antique library clock near the circulation desk in a 19th century temple of learning called the Providence Athenaeum. This is one of the oldest libraries in the United States, a 19th-century library with the soul of a 21st-century rave party. In fact, the Rhode Island institution has been called a national model for civic engagement. A bust of the Greek goddess Athena surveys her realm from the open mezzanine above the main floor. Shafts of light fall gracefully through an atrium. A wrought-iron railing circles the upper floor and bookshelves, fronted by pillars and topped with busts of writers, giving the impression of holding up the ceiling. There’s still a card catalog.”
