Mark Bennett at Defending People turned me on to Issues and Holdings, a blog by New Mexico prosecutor Kirk Chavez, who in turn lead me to Judging Crimes, by Joel Jacobsen, Assistant Attorney General in New Mexico representing the prosecution in appellate courts. Bennett linking to a prosecutor’s blog? Now that’s saying something.

Issues and Holdings focuses on New Mexico law, providing detailed analysis of recent cases and discussion of the issues involved. See California Supreme Court: DNA Reports are not Testimonial, The Sudden Reemergence of State v. Frank; or, The Bell Tolls for Harmless Error in N.M., and To Each Element, A Different Intent.

Judging Crimes takes a more philosophical and measured approach to blogging – one that is thematic, rather than chronological. Combing the archives is well rewarded. See 293. So that its threats may continue to be believed, 292. FY follies, 256. The conservatism of American law schools, and 5. The Constitution’s Rosetta Stone.
