Here's That Humdrum Judge Scola Order No One Is Talking About!

I don't get lawyers sometimes -- if I received an unprecedented, groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind order from a federal judge, the last thing I would do is tell everyone how unprecedented, groundbreaking, and one-of-a-kind it is.

Because last I checked, aren't there still appellate courts?

But not everybody thinks like me (and that's probably a good thing):
In a landmark decision, a Miami federal judge ruled Friday that a class action brought by investors can proceed against the Securities and Exchange Commission in one-time billionaire R. Allen Stanford's investment scheme.

Plaintiffs attorneys called the ruling by U.S. District Judge Robert N. Scola Jr. rejecting the SEC's motion to dismiss "historic."

Come on, Brown v. Board of Education is "historic," landing on the moon is "historic," Bo Derek running on the beach in a gold suit is -- well, you get my drift.

And if asked I would simply state that the Order was well-reasoned and a solid application of longstanding federal law, policy, and jurisprudence.

But what do I know -- I've never received an "historic" order before.


  1. They should be able to get the judge to certify it for interlocutory review based on that comment.

  2. thank god for federal judges...state courts would never rule against the govt

  3. Who touts their own case as historic?

  4. I agree. Appeal courts could change the out-come of that court order. Court reporting in West Palm Beach FL could also be another downfall for the federal court order.

  6. I like your thoughts and it's really great. Thanks for sharing. Bail Bonds Las Vegas

  7. the life of the law has not been logic it has been experience, so state courts would never rule against the govt for the federal court orders. Bail Bonds Richmond

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…
