The readership of the journal has fallen to a very low number. Most attorneys surveyed about their own readership -tossed the surveys in the trash..
This doesn't mean the Board of Editors -all volunteers - doesn't try to choose the best articles.
My real problem with the TBJ, and I am one of the Editors, is the censorship of ideas. Each editor is supposed to come up with issue themes and my idea of EFLING and Tablets in the Court will be utilized later this year. On the other hand when I brought up having an informative issue on the Sunset Review it was nixed because the Bar does not want attorneys even discussing such issues. Letters critical of the bar election in 2013 were censored. As attorneys we should be against censorship unless our license is from North Korea.
