Stuart Rosenfeldt Is A Florida Leader.


Oy, this is one you'll get ribbed about by your out of town lawyer friends who just don't "get" how we do things in Florida:

A distinguished group of Florida business and civic leaders is in Tallahassee this week brushing up on their leadership skills, attending a low country boil and rubbing elbows with past and prospective governors of the state.

In attendance as a member of Leadership Florida is none other than Stuart Rosenfeldt, the former law partner of Fort Lauderdale’s con man extraordinaire, Scott Rothstein.

Rosenfeldt is one of 55 hand-picked members of the leadership organization’s current class, apparently chosen before his Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler law firm collapsed in bankruptcy last fall and his ex-partner went to a federal lock-up for running a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme.

Rosenfeldt has denied any knowledge of the scam but is under investigation by the Florida Bar and is being sued by lawyers handling the law firm’s bankruptcy, who contend he was grossly overpaid with proceeds from the Ponzi scheme and must repay $9.5 million.

Rosenfeldt could not be reached late Thursday afternoon. He’s a registered guest at the Doubletree Hotel in Tallahassee, where the Leadership Florida conference is being held.

Question -- is this the right time for Stu to be participating in something like this?

Related -- maybe Leadership Florida ought to put Stu in next year's class and allow these allegations to play themselves out?

One more -- who's going to play Stu in the movie?

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…
