0.2: Little Bit of Math
THIS WEEK: We take a break from our typical format to share a few exciting announcements and to prepare for a special year-end edition next week. But don’t worry, we’ve got news too.
0.1 + 0.1
It’s a lot of fun to run this newsletter and keep you up to date with interesting legal news and dumb legal jokes. That said, it also takes a minute (at least 12, amirite?) to produce 0.2. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time in the day.
So I’m bringing a partner into the fray. Say hello to Matt Wheatley, also known as 0.1 (worth way more than 6 minutes, but I digress).
Matt is former lawyer and current VP at Priori. Brings with him a wealth of knowledge in law, legal tech, alternative legal career paths, and a laundry list of other topics that we will likely start tackling over the next few months (years?). And as a nice balance with my chronic internet presence, Matt is not active on social media (with the exception of LinkedIn).
Call for law students
With the addition of Matt, we can finally put some time in and grow 0.2.
Context: the reason we write this newsletter is because we wanted entertaining legal news and stories. And while there is no shortage of dense legal publications, the kind of stories and humor we wanted to see ended up being hard to find. We figured many felt the same way and that’s how 0.2 came into being.
Now that we are off and running, we want to make sure the next batch of lawyers and legal professionals also have something they want to read.
Best way to ensure that is growing our presence with the law student community. Matt and I have some exciting things in the works for next year and we need a few law student partners to help us.
So if you are a law student or know of a law student who might be interested in being a contributor to 0.2, tell them to work with us instead of Lexis (unless you’re getting Lexis points, because we get it) or WestLaw or whatever.
Shoot us a message if interested.
About next week
While we may not have a lot to cover your bills this week (we still have some great 0.1s), we’re putting together a special year-end 0.2 for next week before taking some time off until January.
A few 0.1s
Luke Combs has apologized profusely for winning a $250,000 judgment in Federal Court against a Florida woman for using his likeness on cups. He apparently had no idea about the lawsuit, but he does know what he did to Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car. He has yet to apologize for that.
Staying in the great state of Florida, the state’s AG has announced an antitrust investigation after Florida State was left out of the College Football Playoff. We must recuse ourselves from comment given our Florida State connection (Go Noles)
Oh look, a fricken (frick’n) lawsuit.
