3d DCA Watch -- Ca-Ca-Ca-Ca-Ca-Catch the Wave!

At what point do all the opinions look the same?

xxxxx v. State

xxxxx v. United

zzzzz v. zzzzzz

Let me be honest -- I'd like to see some graphics and flash content on the 3d DCA website. You know, snazz it up a bit.

Make it something the "kids" can relate to.

How 'bout maybe have the Chief Judge appear as a large disembodied talking head, Max Headroom-style, as he amusingly walks viewers through the intricacies of filing a PCA?

Or a whack-a-mole type app, where you can bang the gavel on appellate counsel as they scurry around the courtroom, using their files as partial shields?

I don't know, these are just ideas, feel free to share some of your own.

On to the opinions:

Welde v. Top Video:

Who says appellate opinions are boring?
On remand, if the existing record is sufficiently clear for the trial court to make the factual findings, the court may do so. If, on the other hand, the record is not sufficiently clear, then the record must be reopened for presentation of further evidence.
If, on the the third hand, the record has been lost and/or no one gives a darn anymore, the court can just ignore the whole thing.

Rodriguez v. Recovery Performance:

Aah, 6th amended complaint, not so much.

Exile v. Miami-Dade:

Hey, Judge Escharte wrote an "excellent" opinion!

(According to Judge Schwartz).

See what I mean?

So-so-so-so-so-sorry, kids, that's all I got.

Now that the sex lives of Supreme Court justices have become grist for commentators, we are finally free to discuss a question formerly only whispered about in the shadows: Why does Justice Antonin Scalia, by common consent the leading intellectual force on the Court, have nine children? Is this normal? Or should I say "normal," as some people choose to define it? Can he represent the views of ordinary Americans when he practices such a minority lifestyle? After all, having nine children is far more unusual in this country than, say, being a lesbian.

The mail today brings a settlement offer of $490,500.00 on a seizure of $550,000.00 cash. I think I may just accept that offer, cash out my 33% and call it a shumie for the day. I've earned it.

Well there is a small statue of YODA standing directly underneath the portrait of Judge Schwartz at the Judge Schwartz Law Library at the 3rd ... that should offer the kids some entertainment. Anyone know WHY there is a Yoda statue there? I'm talking about Yoda, Jedi Master here. These things need explaining.
