These Are Words That Should Never Be Spoken in the SD FL!

Dearest smart and savvy Judge Rosenbaum, surely you know these words (sorry, no RECAP yet) cause good lawyers to tremble, their toes-wildly-a-tappin', their exclamation points and all-caps and ellipses to.... soar to.... AMAZING!!!! levels:
"This matter arises from a yacht sale gone wrong."
Ok, it's just a sale, not an insurance claim.

Close one, kids, close one.


  1. I miss mag brown

  2. Ernesto the Goldfish/mascotJuly 23, 2013 at 3:42 PM

    I am interested in all things nautical and aquatic.

  3. Mag Brown was a huge tool. Good riddance.

  4. I appreciate all the positive attention and I surmise the attention to Ernesto is humorous in nature and what would be called as "in good fun." I awoke today at 6:11, which is not one of my favorite times. I had scrambled eggs and dry rye toast for breakfast. I arrived at work at 8:08 am, which is an ok time. I billed 6.6 hours of work today which is slightly below my average of 6.8 but sufficient. I am on track to bill 2096 hours working 50 weeks this year. I am satisfied. My data for the week is up to date reference recording temperatures.

    I still had a troubling interaction with the starbucks barrista woman today who again insisted on asking me if I wanted her to leave room for milk or cream. Then when handed my beverage I poured out half and she made a comment which I ignored. I only drink from cups half full. But I drink my cafe americano black. So I truthfully answer NO when asked if I want her to leave room for milk or cream. However if she properly phrased the question, I could inform her to only fill the cup half way. Despite working on this issue, and therapy, the problem continues. I do not wish to be banned from this Starbucks. I am treading lightly on this, hoping it will resolve.

  5. Not to nitpick, but the Halmos case didn't have to do with the sale of a yacht. Just sayin...

  6. Edward, how are you on track to bill bill 2096 hours by averaging 6.8 hours a day? Do you work 6 full days a week?

  7. Yes. I explained that in a prior post detailing my Saturday schedule where I bill 6 hours. I know my averages.

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…
