Homophobe No Longer Above The Law

Heck, if Judge Turnoff can talk about assholes in open court, I figure its open season.

Back in 2010, we covered the story of fired Michigan assistant attorney general Andrew Shrivel here. Andy, pictured above, abused his power and basically stalked, harassed and defamed a college kid. Or so found a jury yesterday, to the tune of 4.5 million. Read about it here.

Defamation, Stalking, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Invasion of Privacy - Shrivel loses all around.

His retort? "The jury trampled on my First Amendment rights, and I'll take this all the way to the Supreme Court!" (I'd like to lock you in a room with Godwhacker for 30 minutes you little shit, and see what gets trampled.)

First Amendment litigation and Supreme Court Practice require the very best, so you might want to choose a Harvard grad like David Lat. Heck, even if David is not capable of appellate work and is not a litigator and has never handled First Amendment Jurisprudence and doesn't even practice law, he may be familiar with the underlying subject matter.

Check out this article Davie wrote while at Harvard.

For those of you who don't access the links below is a highlight of Mr. Lat's article.

"Maybe the suicide rate among gay teenagers would be lower if more of them read the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Church, mistakenly viewed by many as an enemy of homosexuals, in fact states that they "must be accepted with respect, compassion and sensitivity."

Dude, you went to Harvard: what's your cite for that?

Anyhoo, below is a picture of David from his wiki page.

Looking at the pictures of Andrew and David, don't you think they'd have a lot to talk about?


  1. Shrivel (great last name) is wrong; the jury didn't trample on his first amendment rights. He is still free to say whatever he wants, however, he is not free to stalk, defame, harass, invade someone's privacy, or intentionally inflict emotional distress on another person. Shrivel isn't free to yell "fire" in a crowded theater, nor is he free to abuse another individual because of his or her sexual preference.

    From his statements to the press after the verdict, I am guessing that Shrivel didn't shrivel up, but that he stood strong and firm.

    I wonder who is going to pay the damages if they are sustained on appeal.

    Mr. Lat may be another moron, but he is absolutely correct when he states that the Catholic Church accepts homosexuals with respect, compassion and sensitivity - provided they are priests and not parishioners.

    It is interesting to read the biography of Emperor Constantine I, and how he became a Christian. He ended the tremendous persecution of Christians at the hands of Nero and Diocletian. He stopped taxing the Christians but he kept the taxes on the Jews.

    Constantine was noted for another smooth religious move: that of destroying by arson the building of the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem. In order for Christianity to take hold in Jerusalem, the symbols of the dominant religion, had to be destroyed. What better way to do that to tax the crap out of the competing religions?

  2. What is the point of this? Do you know that Lat is homosexual and has been out for years?

  3. No stealth on this douche, one great big blip on the gaydar. This is what happens when sexual orientation is suppressed. If it can't find a healthy outlet it finds unhealthy outlets.

    The fact that Chris Armstrong was young, successful, popular and openly gay is threatening to those who live their lives in the shadows of quivering repressive misery.

    As for the Catholic Church being accepting, that's bullshit psychobabble. Acceptance with condemnation is not acceptance, just a rational for haters to feel better about themselves.

  4. Guest blogger is a hater.

  5. 12:19 pm you're a hater

  6. Catholic teaching absolutely calls for acceptance of homosexuals (and all people in fact) with compassion and respect. Catholic practice, however, is something else altogether.

  7. A short note to tell you that I found your post useful. Cheers.

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…
