Are you a fan of U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf’s “Hercules and the Umpire” blog, which gave a rare inside look into the mind and thoughts of a district court judge? Unfortunately, all you’ll have to go on are old posts, as Kopf has announced he will cease writing the blog moving forward.

Kopf’s New Year’s Day decision to hang up the keyboard came one day after he was featured in a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) story about judges who use the Internet to provide insights into their thought processes. Kopf, though, claims in his final post that the decision is entirely of his own volition and is not related to feedback from the article.
