I wanted to address the silence on this site in the past couple weeks and provide an update about the future of this blog. After touching on a few topics, I realized that the site really needs a library of basic posts that can be referenced when reporting on a new case or change in the law. In order to create something truly of value to readers, I need to start from the very beginning. Therefore, during the next few months, this blog will be focused on summarizing the basics of evidence law. My goal is to build on those basic posts by reporting new rulings and developments in 2013. At that point the content should begin to develop some real depth, but in the interim, the posts here may seem rather elementary. Please bear with me during this building period.
