Congrats to Paul Calli (artist's illustration above).

  1. Congratulations are due to Paul Calli - Paul has shown that his proven success in criminal cases carries very nicely to civil matters.

    No, I am not Paul, or his family. Just a friend who admires his work.

  7. This is why Thornton should be a Federal Judge: Smart, hard working, detailed, fair, decisive. The order is extremely well written and bullet proof on appeal.

  8. Calli could be the first lawyer to win the DBR award for criminal (he has already) and civil!!!

  9. Nice to see this "witch hunt" beginning to come to an end. Lewis & Tein deserve a dozen front page articles in the Miami Herald clearing their name - equal to the dozens of smear articles about them.

  11. Judge Thornton should not have placed his name on this order. First, he grants summary judgment. Alternatively, he dismisses the case for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction. WTF? If you don't have subject-matter jurisdiction, you can't grant summary judgment on the merits. Instead, you'd have to simply dismiss the case. If anything, he should have had Calli write the order in such a way as to state that the court does not have subject-matter jurisdiction and therefore dismisses the case but, alternatively, if the court did have subject-matter jurisdiction, then he would grant summary judgment.

  17. In a decision issued Sunday, one month before a scheduled trial, Thornton wrote: “There is no evidence of fraud. There is no evidence of any damages resulting from any purported bad act.”
