3d DCA Watch -- Get Down Make Ruling!


The bunker may have felt a little "performance anxiety" from its lackluster output of late, so it decided to pop that little blue adjudication confidence pill and revved those order-producing engines -- let's ride that pony ride (mixed metaphors make me horny):

UM School of Medicine v. Ruiz:

UM gets partial immunity in a serious med-mal case. 

General Magistrate Schwabedissen Honorary Society Order:
We deny the petition for certiorari and approve the trial court’s order overruling exceptions to the carefully-crafted, narrowly-drawn, and well-reasoned report and recommendation of General Magistrate Elizabeth M. Schwabedissen.
I agree -- she's great!

Faddis v. City of Homestead:

A lawyer filed a what was determined to be a frivolous appeal and now has to pay costs and perhaps more:
Curiously, Patterson’s response to our order to show cause makes no argument on behalf of his client. Rather, it is a screed following hard upon his eply brief filed in this appeal, where he insinuates that he is “being bullied” by the parties, their counsel, or the court in this case, and that a “miscarriage of justice . . . is knowingly being perpetrated upon him,” (emphasis added). He likens “the story” of the case he filed on behalf of Faddis to “the story of Fidel Castro’s suffocating grip of Cuba, the Holocaust, Jim Crow laws, and Hillary Clinton.” According to him, the trial court sanction – and probably, now this one as well – are part of some political scheme to silence him and his client. Patterson is grossly mistaken. This case is not about political connection, human atrocities, bullies, or, as he would have it, the ability of “strong minded individuals” to stand up for the powerless. This case is about an officer of the court who proffered false evidence in violation of the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar. See R. Regulating Fla. Bar 4-3.3(a)(4). It is now probably also about an attorney who has impugned the qualifications and integrity of the judges of this court, the trial court, or other officers. See R. Regulating Fla. Bar 4-8.2(a).
Did I mention how the whole "bunker" thing is a pure labor of love?

Patterson is in serious trouble.

General Magistrate Schwabedissen is one of the hardest working people in that courthouse and her knowledge of the e-discovery rules is truly impressive.

Signed,

Not Elizabeth Schwabedissen

Nice to see the court compliment a judge who works hard and deserves it. Also not Elizabeth Schwabedissen

Judges of the Bunker: You don't need to hyphenate phrasal adjectives that begin with adverbs ending in -ly. Draft carefully crafted opinions, not carefully-crafted ones.

That little fraudster will be lucky to not go to prison . No way he keeps his bar license.
