Ex-Mediabistro Editor Launches Legal Gossip Blog

Above The Law, Dealbreaker founder Elizabeth Spiers‘ long-awaited addition to her latest blog empire, has launched. Spiers, who told us in April that “launches aren’t much fun,” seemed at least mildly excited about this one.

Subject: Introducing AboveTheLaw.com

Dear Friends, today is Warren Buffett‘s 76th birthday. And as a special gift to the father of value investing, we’ve made him a very special LAW BLOG.

It’s called AboveTheLaw.com and it’s written by David Lat, ex-of Wonkette.com and Underneath Their Robes. And it is now LIVE.

Sure, a law blog has nothing to do with investing and nothing to do with Mr. Buffett, but it’s the thought that counts, right? And if Buffett doesn’t like it, then he’s an ungrateful bastard.

So Happy Birthday, Mr. Buffett.
