3d DCA Watch -- Turkey Trot Edition!


I love the bunker this time of year.

Everyone wears their brown and gold robes (resplendently!), the coffee maker dispenses beaujolais nouveau (and at the same lukewarm temperature), and the clerks perform a lively reenactment of the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving:
"our harvest being gotten in, our governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might after a special manner rejoice together, after we had gathered the fruits of our labors; they four in one day killed as much fowl, as with a little help beside, served the Company almost a week, at which time amongst other Recreations, we exercised our Arms, many of the Indians coming amongst us, and amongst the rest their greatest king Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted, and they went out and killed five Deer, which they brought to the Plantation and bestowed on our Governor, and upon the Captain and others. And although it be not always so plentiful, as it was at this time with us, yet by the goodness of God, we are so far from want, that we often wish you partakers of our plenty."
 Hey, this could have been written by one of our judges!

Dynamic v. Rodriguez:

How's this for an early Christmas present:
Dynamic Public Adjusters, Inc. (“Dynamic”), a licensed public adjusting company, appeals the trial court’s order awarding Henry Rodriguez (“Rodriguez”), an appraiser, a $400,000 fee stemming from the settlement of the two supplemental Hurricane Wilma claims filed by Key West Beach Club Condominium Association 1, Inc. and Key West Beach Club Condominium Association No. 2, Inc. (collectively, “the condominium associations”) against their property insurer, Citizens Property Insurance Corporation (“Citizens”). We reverse the order under review and remand with instruction to enter a judgment awarding the $400,000 fee to Dynamic.
Ouch!

Orthopedic Center v. Parks:

Court affirms subpoena seeking to distinguish testifying expert's work as a retained expert vs. as a treating physician.

Happy Turkey Day!!!!

Wishing love and peace to everyone out there!

Kula and Samson lose again.

When Kula and Samson lose an appeal, a precious little baby angel gets her wings.
