Temporary Hiatus

Today begins my hiatus from blogging due to my role as a summer intern for a judge on the Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Don’t worry though, I’ll spend the summer fixing some background stuff on DailyWrit and I’m certain that the website will be back, better than ever, in mid-August. Additionally, I hope the time off will give me some room to read briefs and catch up on the pile court-related reading that has been stacking up on my desk over the past year.

Have a fantastic summer!
