Welcome to the Official 3d DCA Halloween Horror Nights Watch!


It's so festive to see the bunker all alit with the eerie orange glow of Halloween -- the macabre jack o lanterns staring at you everywhere you turn, plus the usual collection of grotesque and frightening goblins, ghosts, zombies, and skeletons.

And those are just the judges!

Oh I kid, let's get to it:

Sukonik v. Wallack:

Wow, a trial order striking pleadings for discovery violations upheld by the 3d!

Which judge made all the correct findings and did this right, pray tell?
An Appeal from the Circuit Court for Miami-Dade County, Maria M. Korvick, Judge.
See folks, this can be done and sustained on appeal (when appropriate).

Steinberg v. Marlin:

Oy veh what a crew of attorneys involved in this dispute over disqualifying Harris Buchbinder!
Buchbinder & Elegant, P.A., and Harris J. Buchbinder, for petitioner.
Broad and Cassel, and Mark F. Raymond, A., Amy Steele Donner, and Amanda Star Frazer, for respondents.
Here's a taste:
The record reflects that an attorney-client relationship existed between the Marlins and Buchbinder and his law firm. Buchbinder and his law firm represented Robert Marlin and FBK in substantially related matters when Buchbinder and his firm represented Marlin and FBK in the previously mentioned Broward County case and the Miami-Dade county collection case. Respondents thus satisfied the requirement for disqualification based on a conflict of interest relating to former clients. See R. Regulating Fla. Bar 4-1.9.
Congrats to Mark and Judge Donner!

  1. The Marlins hired Bookbinder??? They need to change managers. Such an inelegant name for a law firm.
