(1) Red Tape Blog Now Carries the Most Recent Articles
for News From Around the Country

In response to a request at our last Godort of Michigan meeting at the Wayne State University School of Law, the Red Tape editor will be mounting items for "News from Around the Country" on the Red Tape Blog first. Time will tell if he has enough time to go back and mount all of the same items in this regular Red Tape Newsletter. Your advice will be appreciated on whether it's worth the effort to post items in both locations.
