For the second year in a row Marler Blog, the blog of food safety attorney Bill Marler, has been honored as one of the year’s top blogs in the American Bar Association Journal’s annual Blawg 100.

The Blawg 100 is a listing of the top 100 legal blogs in the ABA Journal directory. The ABA chooses 100 blogs to represent the Blawg 100, then voters determine rankings within categories such “Business Law”, “News”, or “For Fun.” According the ABA website, there are over 3,500 legal blogs in existence and over 1,300 blogs were entered into the running for the 2011 Blawg 100. MarlerBlog was voted #2 in the Torts category and received the 9th most total votes.

The ABA Journal describes MarlerBlog:

"You may never look at a produce aisle the same way again once you’ve read Seattle lawyer Bill Marler’s exhaustive coverage of food safety violations. Marler tracks food poisoning cases with a single-minded fervor, offering a valuable resource to trial attorneys, food producers and anyone sitting down to dinner."

“It is truly an honor for MarlerBlog to be recognized in this fashion,” said Marler, who not only litigates foodborne illness cases, but also advocates for a safer food supply. “I work very hard to make sure the blog provides worthwhile, compelling, and pertinent information; I’m just happy the ABA and the voters agree.”

The blog was also recognized in the 2010 Blawg 100, but this year saw a dramatic uptick in votes as Marler Blog went from 130 votes in 2010 to 340 in 2011. MarlerBlog was also named to the 2011 Lexis Nexis Top 25 Blogs list in both the “Business Law” and “Tort” categories.

BILL MARLER is the Managing Partner of Marler Clark, the nation’s leading law firm dedicated to representing victims of foodborne illness. He travels frequently around the country speaking to a variety of audiences about food safety issues. He was awarded the 2010 NSF Food Safety Leadership Award for Innovation in Education and in 2011 was the recipient Seattle University’s Professional Achievement Award.
