Vote in Public Defender Blog Awards

I meant to post about this yesterday, but was reminded this a.m. via Talk Left, where Jeralyn writes:
Public defenders toil daily in the courtroom trenches protecting constitutional rights for very little money and even less glory.

Now there's a blog awards just for them. Sentencing Law and Policy explains here.

But don't take our word for it, head on over to the Inaugural 2006 Public Defender Blog Awards and check out the diverse and thoughtful blogs and cast a vote.

The 2006 Blawg Awards didn't include a category for public defenders, an oversight that will be remedied next year. But there are some good sites there, so mosey over there too and check out the winners.
I'm glad next year's Blawg Review Awards will include the PDs; Grits was proud to receive the Blawg Review's "Equal Justice Award" this year, but certainly the public defender blogs add great depth and front-line street cred to the legal blogosphere, and deserve recognition. Go vote for your faves.
