Here is LawNewz's own coverage on what it had achieved during those 12 months.
The homeruns included uncovering a $125 million lawsuit against Donald Trump in a storage facility in Missouri; live streaming of high-profile criminal trials; and putting together a legal opinion about Emailgate that went viral.
But those of us still playing in media sandboxes know LawNewz's biggest accomplishment was just staying alive.
Darkness has fallen in part or totally on a growing number of media properties.
For example, American Law Media has laid off at both Corporate Counsel and American Law Daily.
Yahoo shuttered several other publications.
And, there's no question but that The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal will have to continue to downsize manpower.
In The Atlantic, Joseph Frankel documents how hard it had become for writers to make a buck today. It's a buyer's market for writing talent. And buyers have been brutally aggressive in reducing the usual payment per word. One wonders who is having a more difficult time struggling to hang in there: writers or lawyers.
Let's hope we will be celebrating a second birthday for LawNewz.
