If you have an interest in litigation, and a little bit of free time, I don't see how it would not be beneficial. It will give you good experience, and it will also provide a good topic of conversation during interviews with litigation firms. If you would rather spend the time posting on TLS, studying, or watching TV it is probably not worth it. Sounds cool though. I'd go for it.
