Controversy over the results of Above the Law’s 2017 law revue video contest

“It’s time to announce the winner of Above the Law’s 2017 Law Revue Video Contest. And the winner is… There is no winner. In fact, you — or many of you, at least — are a bunch of losers”, is how David Lat opens Law Revue Video Contest 2017: The Winner!. You see, web traffic to the contest’s web page was nowhere near as high as the number of votes some of the contestants received. That discrepancy alerted ATL to the possibility that some ethically challenged students gamed the contest in favor of their finalist. [Finalists here] ATL is now conducting a do-over of its 2017 Law Revue Video contest. Lat writes “[i]f you return to Above the Law at some point on Monday, you will see a post providing you with information on how to re-vote in the Law Revue Video Contest, using a more secure system.” — Joe
