This Happened.

Sorry, it's a slow news day.

Tipsters, help me out here.


  1. WOW! What next? Al Martino with Janis Joplin?


  2. OK SFL, here you go. Here is your story for your slow news day.



    The following 16 (2 County Court Judges & 14 attorneys) have applied for the privilege of replacing former CJ Joel Brown:

    Jason Bloch
    Donald (DJ) Cannava
    Thomas Aquinas Cobitz
    Michelle A. Delancy
    Raul Flores
    Wendell M. Graham
    Christopher Green
    Ayana N. Harris
    Robert J. Luck
    Stephen T. Millan
    Sandra Miller-Batiste
    Andrew A. Ostrow
    Melba V. Pearson
    Steven R. Reininger
    Alan D. Sackrin
    Julie Harris Terry

    Call me crazy, but didn't DJ Cannava become a County Court Judge like three weeks ago? Maybe he should put a couple of years in before applying for a raise?***

    ***To be fair, Judge Cannava has been on the bench for 15 months.



  3. Who cares what really happened. We're writers goddamn it, we just make something up. A Republican, an underage hooker, a public restroom, assorted drugs, an official on the take and "poof" there's the post! ;-)

  4. Breaking: Rumpole, DOM and CJ Fred Moreno all seen huddling over lunch downtown. Seems like something big is about to break at least Federally. Maybe one of them will also be going on the Bachorlette? Or is Survivor in their future? "
    Sorry Judge Moreno, the tribe has spoken.!"

  5. Good sharing of this nice post. Thanks.

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…
