11th Circuit Issues Ruling on PIP EUOs LOL!

Ok, I added the last acroynm.

But PIP lawyers have something to celebrate in that the 11th Circuit, after certifying the legal question to the Florida Supreme Court, has now issued its ruling on whether insurers can require examinations under oath (EUOs) in order to recover PIP benefits:
So that means the case goes back to Judge King:
Accordingly, based upon the Supreme Court of Florida’s answer to our certified question in its opinion filed on June 27, 2013, and attached hereto as “Appendix I”, we reverse the district court’s judgment of dismissal of Nunez’s complaint for failure to state a claim and its order denying her motion for reconsideration and remand this case to the district court for further proceedings consistent with the opinion of the Supreme Court of Florida.
What's next -- judgment on the pleadings?

I'm kidding (I hope!).


  1. Happy Friday, SFL. Hang Ten, Baby!!

  2. Hmm, I feel like all rulings should benefit people over companies. People never have the resources or political clout and need to be helped out, especially in cases like personal injury, medical malpractice, and the like. Beverly MA personal injury lawyers do a good job of helping people out in my home town.

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…
