Dirty Work.....



What's with all these alleged "patsy" stories -- David Rivera/Justin Sternad, the whole Nevin Shapiro thing, sheesh.

In other news, more trouble at U.S. Century Bank,  and what do you know -- something positive -- Judge Cooke to be honored:
Trailblazing U.S. District Judge Marcia G. Cooke will be honored as part of Black History Month observances during a celebration being hosted Feb. 28 by the delancyhill law firm and the Little Haiti Cultural Center.
Cooke will be recognized for her “trailblazing legal career and her unwavering upliftment of black history and cultural awareness in the federal judicial system,” according to a statement from Marlon Hill, principal of the law firm.
The reception will host clients, firm partners, and community leaders from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and will include cultural presentations by the Little Haiti Cultural Center, 212 N.E. 59th Ter., Miami.  
Hey, maybe we can end the week on a good note after all....

  3. Nothing about the fact that our favorite tribe sued their long time and recently fired accountant? Methinks it was retaliation for her deposition that was favorable to L&T. This poor woman has nothing compared to the Tribe - legal fees could bankrupt her.

    I am beginning to think that the Tribe is dirty.

  5. "Oye, I play by the rules,” Perez said. “Had I been doing something wrong, I’m sure I would have gotten a call from the bankruptcy court. I understand he’s (Shapiro) is in jail for a Ponzi scheme, but a lot of the reason he is there is because of his good nature.”

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…
