Has Tom Tew Embraced His Inner Lou Costello?



I don't know, I'm starting to get sick of writing about the law all the time. Are you folks getting sick of reading about it?

A friend passed along Judge Tjoflat's recent spankdown of Judge Cooke the other day. My reaction -- why be so personal? You don't agree with her ruling, fine, but no one needs to go overboard or embarrass anyone, particularly when you are in a position of power as an appellate court. It's just not necessary.

(Judge Schwartz, are you listening?)

And another friend passed along this spankdown of Tom Tew and Rachlin Cohen -- what the hail?

I guess Tom is the Receiver and was trying to get Rachlin paid for some tax work, but it kinda went off the rails, big time.

The opinion needs to be read in full, but this snippet gives you a flavor:
Through emails, memoranda, revised, re-revised, and thrice-revised invoices, the Receiver and Rachlin offered a stream of unresponsive and obsfucatory answers to the Monitor's inquiries reminiscent of the "Who's on First?" Abbott and Costello comedy routine.
Oy.

The opinion ends with a finding of an actual conflict of interest and a strongly worded show cause order.

Maybe my age is showing, but I don't recall that bit in the Abbott and Costello routine.

    Another black leader expresses dismay at Alex Acosta as finalist for FIU job

    The opposition is centered primarily on Acosta’s tenure in Washington where he held a position as deputy attorney general of the U.S. Justice Department’s civil rights division.

  7. Can't read about Tom Tew and not think of everyone's favorite pirate from Rhode Island and the rum named after him:
