Iowa Judge Allows Live Blogging In Courtroom

Tweet This is bigger than you think. U.S. District Judge Mark Bennett of Sioux City, Iowa, is a tech-savvy judge in a district with high-tech courtrooms.

Anonymous sources decrease the legitimacy of your information if that’s all you use. I don’t, and have never […]
