Economic Loss Rule -- When It All Comes Down!

The Florida Supreme Court's recent decision to abrogate the economic loss rule (except in product liability cases) has started to work its way into the case law, including this new 11th Circuit opinion:
The Supreme Court of Florida answered its question in the negative and held that the application of the economic loss rule was limited to products liability cases. Accordingly, based on the opinion the Supreme Court of Florida filed with the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals on March 11, 2013, and attached hereto as “Appendix I,” we vacate the district court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of Marsh on Tiara’s claims for negligence and breach of fiduciary duty and remand those claims for the district court to reconsider them in light of the Supreme Court of Florida’s opinion.
Note to Justices Canady and Polston: The sky is falling, the sky is falling!


  1. What--no mention of Lewis and Tein's $50,000 fine or the fact that Judge Dresnick wimped out on finding no perjury?

  2. The coverage is so saturated I felt it would be overkill.

  3. Asking questions are genuinely pleasant thing if you are not understanding
    anything totally, however this piece of writing provides nice
    understanding yet.

  4. Ok. You get a Mulligan on this one.

  5. SFL - SOOOOO right. I am so sick of this crap its not funny. Who cares? Go piss on each other in private. Although I will say it seems like Lewis Tein's lawyer is dismantling the other side. Publicly.

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…
