Good vs Evil (legal citation edition)

Hey there … We just found out–via James Creedon and Matthew Rimmer (above)–that two of our colleagues (professors C.J. Sprigman and Carl Malamud, to be more exact) are working on an open source (i.e. free) version of legal citation rules tentatively titled BabyBlue. (Copyright infringement, anyone?) As far as we’re concerned, however, the existing rules of legal citation set forth in the venerable “Bluebook” are so cumbersome and convoluted that we can’t wait for BabyBlue to be released to the public … In the meantime, we are in the process of writing up our own set of simple and rational rules for legal citations called “A Stylebook for Law,” one that gets rid of “supras” and “infras” and replaces footnotes with bibliographies.
