Did Practitioners' Blog Lead to Judge's Downfall?

According to Julie Kay's Judges Feel Legal Blogs' Glare, the Justice Building Blog (JBB Blog) was started in August 2006 by a group of criminal defense lawyers fed up with the way things were being run in the Broward (FL) courthouse. She reports, "in May, Dale Ross, chief judge for the Florida circuit court in Broward County for 16 years, stepped down following a year of embarrassing scandals, gaffes and bad behavior by his judges. Although pressure was building for Ross to resign for years, many legal observers say it would not have happened if not for the new Broward courthouse blog, JAA Blog."
