Blogs' Day in Court?

Blogosphere, meet Judge Clement James. The retired associate justice of the Oregon Supreme Court lashed out at bloggers today, declaring that it is "high time to fill the gap in a system that allows defamation in the blogosphere to go unchecked."

It's hardly surprising that, as blogs rise in prominence, they will be met with a growing call for regulation and for accountability. Judge James isn't going to be the man to bring the hammer down, but methinks the next few years will bring the courts and the blogosphere together in some less-than-pleasant confrontations.
