Blogging with an eye to influencing courts

When is it permissible – either as a question of formal legal ethics or in some sense morally – to write a post in the hope and/or expectation that it will influence the outcome of a case? When is it realistic to believe a post will have that effect? This is our weekly topic sponsored by Bloomberg Law, in which we discuss an issue of more general interest to law students.
