I have been posting original content on Minnesota Litigator (with the help of MANY guest posters over the years, admittedly), five posts/week, 50 weeks/year since September 22, 2008 (roughly 1,785 posts).
This has been a huge pleasure. I have received accolades, laurels, gratitude, pity, and furiously indignant telephone calls along the way. This all has made the hard work and long hours worthwhile.
But, at the same time, LEVENTHAL pllc has celebrated its fifth anniversary of being in business this month. We have grown from a law firm of one scrappy full-time employee (yours truly) all the way to a regionally feared powerhouse of one full-time employee (guess who). Business has picked up, naturally, and keeping up has proven difficult from time to time.
So I called
the slacker the responsible lawyer into my office recently for his annual performance review and I read him the Riot Act. Predictably, he sneered at me for the inappropriate use of a 301 year-old law from outside the relevant jurisdiction, which is also factually distinguishable. (At LEVENTHAL pllc, we encourage open and spirited disagreement but we frown on sneering, btw.) Then the sorry wretch started whinging about workload, muttering about labor laws, and twitching in a way that made me more than a little nervous that the organization has been pushing our golden goose dynamo our readers’ tolerance past reasonable limits.
Accordingly, as of this week, Minnesota Litigator will be tightening the spigot and reducing post production down to three posts/week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) until further notice. Exceptions will be made on an as-needed basis. Thanks, again, again, and again, to you, excellent readers, contributors, friends, family, bench, bar, and citizenry. We hope that quality will increase with the decrease in output…
