A Review of Tools on Tort Talk

There are a number of tools on Tort Talk (http://www.torttalk.com/) I wanted to highlight by way of this post.

First of all, I have updated the Post-Koken Scorecard as of today to add a number of new decisions that were already previously reported on Tort Talk.  To make the Scorecard more orderly, I also put the various county listings in alphabetical order.  Within each county listing of cases, I have tried to list the oldest cases first and add the more recent decisions at the bottom of each listing.

You can always access the Post-Koken cases to check on the status of decisions in your county at issue by scrolling down the right hand column of the blog and clicking on the date under the Label "Post-Koken Scorecard."

Speaking of Labels, that's another tool that you can use to find cases or articles on a specific topic.  If you scroll further down the right hand column of the blog, you will find a section marked "Labels" with a variety of topics listed thereunder.  By clicking on the Label that's specific to your research, you will be sent to a page that list each and every Tort Talk post that touches upon that topic.  You can then click on each title to read further.

Another way to conduct research on a particular topic is to use the "Search This Blog" tool that is closer to the top of the right hand column of the blog.  By typing in your search term in the white box (delay damages, limited tort, slip and fall, or a case name, etc.), you will be sent to a page that will list each Tort Talk post that covers that topic.  You can then click on each post to read further.

Down in the middle of the right hand column of the blog is also a box under the Label "My Published Articles" in which are listed some of the most recently published articles of mine that have been posted online at the JDSupra.com website.  If you are looking for older articles you can always click on the JDSupra box to go to that site where a full listing of the articles can be accessed and searched.

Last but certainly not least, down on the right hand column is a list of "Links" I have created to other sites, including my Firm's website and other online professional profiles I have created along with links to some other legal and non-legal-related websites that may be of interest.

Thanks again for reading Tort Talk and thanks to all who have tipped me off to breaking news and cases of note.  I am grateful for your interest and support.  If I should be able to provide you with any assistance on any matters you may have in the Northeastern Pennsylvania region where I practice, or if I can possibly help out in any other way, please do not hesitate to contact me at dancummins@comcast.net.


Thanks.
