Florida Supreme Court: Justice System Pretty Much Broke!




created at TagCrowd.com




If you're in a good mood you do not want to read this gloom-and-doom certification report from the Florida Supreme Court on how broke down and busted Florida's justice system is.

To make it easy, I've put together a "word cloud" so you can get a feel for the report without actually having to read the whole dreary thing.

Enjoy(?)

  2. The important thing to do at this point is figure out who to blame, and blame them. Do nothing else.

    Florida Bar Bombshell: Five Ethics “Inquiries” Re Scott Rothstein Were “Closed” in the Last Year BUT
    Bar Will Not Disclose Them to the Public

    Miamian Jack Thompson recently served a public records law request upon The Florida Bar, and today he got The Florida Bar’s bombshell response:

    The Bar: We have five “inquires” [sic] made to The Bar regarding Scott Rothstein’s ethics, but we will not provide them to the public “pursuant to Rule 3-7.1(b) of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar.”

    This admission that five such inquiries existed but that The Bar will not disclose to the public what they were raises the likelihood that The Florida Bar had been put on notice that Rothstein was engaged in unethical, illegal, and/or criminal conduct and yet did nothing about it.

    The question from the Watergate era, with apologies to Tennessee’s US Senator Howard Baker, is this:

    What did The Bar know and when did it know it?

    By stonewalling in its public record response to Thompson The Bar refuses to answer that key question, which makes placing The Florida Bar in the crosshairs of the Miami FBI Field Office public corruption probe and the Florida Statewide Grand Jury’s corruption probe necessary.

    Contact Jack Thompson for more information at 305-666-4366, amendmentone@comcast.net. He will provide a copy of The Bar’s cover-up letter of February 16.

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 o…

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…
