Site Adds Kentucky Decisions

Barry Miller has generously agreed to monitor Kentucky state law decisions for Daubert on the Web. A partner in the Lexington law firm Fowler, Measle & Bell, Miller concentrates his practice on insurance issues, including extracontractual claims, representing insurers and policy-holders. He reported for small-town newspapers in Kentucky for several years before attending law school, and has taught Mass Communications Law at Eastern Kentucky University. We're glad to welcome him aboard.

This expands the site's state law coverage to eight states (AL, CO, IL, KY, ND, TX, UT, and VA), comprising about 20 per cent of the American population. Write to us if you'd like to help by monitoring decisions for one of the remaining jurisdictions.
Fed. R.
