The Case of the Toe-Tapping Lawyer!

I used to really love this case, but now it's starting to acquire the feel of a wrinkled old hot dog that someone left on the roller for three days and whose only remaining purpose is to give you botulism.

In our latest wacky installment, lawyers accuse other lawyers of using the ancient method of "toe-tapping" to allegedly signal to a witness how to respond during a deposition, there are "enhanced features" such as embedded camera phone pics (plus there's even a Rose Mary Woods reference for us old-school Nixon chronics!).

I'm not kidding when I say you really have to read the entire thing:

  1. And I thought this was a clever tie-in with todays gay marriage ruling.

    Did you hear? Bigotry is unconstitutional!

  2. This is a must read. Is a "male peacock in a mating call" really the only analogy you can find?

  3. Nice candids....but where are the upskirts??

  4. I think that is why the picture is so vertically challenged. Bet the response admits to a "private" relationship

  5. Observations:

    1. Joe Klock writing style is clunky and he knows not how to turn a phrase.

    2. WTf with the third person rhetorical crap in the first couple of paragraphs? Way to send up the rockets to your reader that you are a self absorbed doosh.

    3. Nice job of putting the incriminating photo on every page. How long till we see animation in a brief?

    4. @659 . . . The upskirts are on Jonathon's phone. Not calling him "Mr. Burke" makes Klock reek like a boob

  6. I was expecting a gladiator reference, Timmy.

  7. I am a big fan. I was thinking about making my own site about similar ideas for like-minded people. Some good ideas here. Thanks.

  8. Great article.Thanks for sharing. salt lake city seo firm

  9. I haven't heard about the toe-tapping. But is it not allowed? I guess I have to read this article then. Thanks!


  10. This won't succeed as a matter of fact, that's exactly what I consider.

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…
