Good Times, Bad Times -- I Know I've Had My Share.

In a bit of sad news, I wanted to note the passing of Gentle Giant and true legal legend Ed Moss.

Ed was a tremendously talented and effective litigator, with a wry sense of humor, who was always a gentleman and respectful to all -- including opposing counsel, junior lawyers, pizza deliverymen and just about everyone who came into contact with him.

He was a role model to many, and will be missed.

And in some very good news, this happened:
Mary Barzee Flores, a shareholder at Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler Alhadeff & Sitterson and former Miami-Dade circuit judge, was nominated Thursday to the federal bench in the Southern District of Florida.

Barzee Flores has been a fixture in high-stakes litigation, most recently appearing as plaintiffs counsel in the Takata air bag multidistrict litigation newly assigned to U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno in Miami. She has been with Stearns Weaver since 2011, where she practices complex commercial and employment litigation.
This is a major win for the federal bench, and for all those who will appear before the Judge.

Let's get this through Congress already!

Ed Moss was not only a great lawyer, but a true gentleman. He was very kind to me when I was a "junior" lawyer. He will be missed.
