My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case.

The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.

“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”

Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 over about 10 years starting in the 1980s, usually in cash. That includes $2,000 stuffed in an envelope just before the judge decided a major civil case that earned their firm $500,000 to $1 million.

Can you imagine?

I love this comment by the judge's attorney:

The judge’s lawyer, Richard Westling, acknowledged that some of his client’s decisions “in the light of day, looking backward, might have been handled differently.”

“I think what you’ll find is that there has never been an argument that what happened in Judge Porteous’ courtroom was anything but fair,” Mr. Westling said.

In other words -- corrupt, but fair.

The Judge has an interesting argument on immunized testimony you can read about here.

Ok, let's get back to Romina, whose Facebook page is (currently) here.

You know, I buy suits from Tom James on occasion, yet my sales guy looks nothing like Romina.

Then again, my suits don't look anything like what Scott used to wear either.


  1. Even if he were so inclined, there's no way SR could buy Zegna or Brioni suits off the rack at Neimans. I don't believe either one makes suits in a 48 portly short (that would be a 60 portly short in Italian sizing).

    As for Romina, she's hot, but not all THAT hot.

  2. She could sell slop to a pig.

    Wait a minute, she did.

  3. Is Romina related to Victor Sifuentes?

    @9:30 regarding Romina: agreed. She's a dime a dozen on Brickell during late lunch hour.

  4. 9:36, Regarding Romina, agreed.

  5. Who gives a fuck about that fat fuck Rothstein. MOVE ON!

  6. At least you know if you pay the guy you get a fair hearing.

  7. @943

    Carver makes a cameo on that other blog no one reads.

  8. Sic Carver on Rothstein.

  9. G-d I love Romania. And the Kimster too. The best thing about Scotty boy is the women he surrounded himself with.

  10. Rumpole ripping you off again.

  11. SFL why no football on this blog?

  12. I'm holding my own with Markus and crew in fantasy, but there's so much sports chatter already out there I'm reluctant to add to it.

  13. Look at all those teeth! And that schnozola!

    Are we sure she is a shiksa?

  14. I don't know about anyone else, but I'd love to see a picture of the hottest judge out there.

  15. finally, I found your article again. You have few [url=]useful tips[/url] for my school project. Now, I won't forget to bookmark it. :)

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
