Your Friday Morning Digital Dump!

Hi there, that was some debate last night!

Anyone else notice how much water Paul Ryan drank?

He's obviously following the P90X nutritional plan to a tee:
In all of the phases eating frequent small meals and drinking lots of water are emphasized.
Where were the celery sticks?  (Biden probably would have chomped them right out of Ryan's hands.)

In other news, DBR reporter Deb Espana reports on law students doing good things:
A Guatemalan teenager who came to the United States with his parents when he was 11 is attending a magnet high school focusing on law studies and dreams of becoming a Drug Enforcement Administration agent.

He is a senior at the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial High School in Miami and seeking admission to West Point.

But because of his status as an undocumented immigrant, he has been unable to take any jobs and faces other limitations as a noncitizen.

To help children and young adults like him, Florida International University College of Law has joined forces with the law schools at the University of Miami and St. Thomas University to handle applications under a change in immigration policy by President Barack Obama. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program allows the deferral of removal for immigrant students and young adults.
Call me crazy, but don't you just love stories like this?

Meet the Herald's newest columnist, Florida Supreme Court Justice James E.C. Perry: 
Make no mistake. It’s not just about the Florida Supreme Court justices and appellate court judges on the ballot. It’s much bigger than that. The integrity of the entire judicial branch — and therefore, the overall balance of our state’s government — is in play.

Look at it this way: Will Florida Supreme Court Justices and appellate court judges in the future hesitate to make difficult decisions that they believe are required of them if their colleagues have been voted out of office for doing just that?

You be the judge.
Not bad, Your Honor -- and already a huge improvement on Garvin!

Finally, this guy is building a practice focusing exclusively on e-discovery: 
Teppler is now going where few other attorneys on the Gulf Coast are, by hyper-focusing his practice on a rare new section of the law: electronic discovery. The concentration isn’t only counterintuitive. It’s also timely, in that the Florida Supreme Court recently adopted seven new rules of civil procedure specific to electronic data discovery in state courts.

The rules are supposed to make the e-discovery process clearer, more specific and more efficient. The rules, which also spell out how judges can sanction attorneys in e-discovery matters, were adopted in July and went into effect Sept. 1.

The trick now is to ensure attorneys, and by extension, their clients, are fully aware of the changes. “There are some landmines (in e-discovery) that can trip up attorneys, to the detriment of clients,” Teppler says. “Attorneys know how to handle technology — kind of. But when it comes to litigation, they are at a disadvantage.”
Right, like I had to ask my kid last night how to change my default settings in iTunes.  He told me to stick my metadata where the sun don't shine.

The children really are our future!

  1. The judge overstepped his bounds to enter the political realm. For shame!

  2. Awesomeness. Such a great blog. That other one isn't. But this one is.

  3. "hesitate to make difficult decisions that they believe are required of them"?????

    What political spin!

    It should have been: "hesitate to impose political and moral beliefs (and maybe some cronyism) through controversial decisions that are contrary to legislative law and what the public believes is fair and just."

  4. Right, like Obamacare passed by a majority of Congress and endorsed by an elected President.

  5. "like Obamacare passed by a majority of Congress and endorsed by an elected President."

    So, are you saying the Supreme Court should have rejected Obamacare while stating "we made a difficult decision that we believed was required of us."

    How well do you think that response would have gone down?

    Judge Perry was electioneering with silly rhetoric and should have kept quiet.

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…

First Carnival Triumph Lawsuit on File!

It was filed in the SD FL (of course) and is pending before Judge Graham.
