Newstex Authoriative Blogger David Donoghue of the Chicago IP Litigation Blog and partner in Chicago’s Holland & Knight law firm won the Kogan Award in the online category from the Chicago Bar Association’s (CBA) annual Herman Kogan Media Awards Competition.

The Kogan Award is the highest honor of the competition which honors local journalists and legal affairs reporting, and as the winner, David received a trophy and a $1,000 scholarship, which he can donate to a journalism school of his choice.

David’s win came from the entry of his “Northern District of Illinois’ New Local Patent Rules”, which he published on his blog offering analysis of the new laws related to local patents and the potential impact those laws will have on future litigation filings in Chicago.

Congratulations, David!
