So Courtney Milan is an author of fine historical romances, but she’s also a trained lawyer. This post is technically about a TRO (temporary restraining order) failing publisher Ellora’s Cave took out against blogger Jane Litte of Dear Author. That’s kind of a bit inside baseball, but what’s really interesting about Milan’s analysisΒ is the ready and accessible way she breaks down quite complex legal arguments around free speech and public interest.

Basically, if you’re even mildly interested in those topics–or just how the law works in general–it’s worth taking a few minutes to have a read.
