Who is going to buy SCOTUSblog?

And for how much?

“No other law blog has come close the impact SCOTUSBlog has had. It’s become the news source of record on the Supreme Court for lawyers, for the press, for the public, and even the justices and their clerks.” — Kevin O’Keefe, Real Lawyers Have Blogs

ABAJ’s Debra Cassens Weiss has confirmed that Tom Goldstein, founder of SCOTUSblog, plans to sell his blog next summer. She reports

Goldstein hopes that he can obtain press credentials to make SCOTUSblog more attractive to potential buyers, according to AP. His current expenses to run the blog, he says, are $500,000 a year.

This could get very interesting. Will BLaw, the current sponsor of SCOTUSblog, be bidding (or will BLaw convert USLW into a clone of SCOTUSblog)? WEXIS? Will the sale price mark the floor or ceiling of similar law-related blogs? — Joe
