Oops -- Flo Rida Forgot to Attend His Court-Ordered Deposition and Mediation.

As first reported by the Herald's Jose Lambiet, Florida's own Flo Rida had other things to do and so blew off Judge Ungaro's Court-ordered mediation and deposition.

But then his counsel filed a response to the order to show cause.

All good?

Not quite:
Defendants’ Response is untimely and insufficient. As to the Response’s untimeliness, Defendants did not request an extension, and the Response itself provides no explanation for the untimely filing. See D.E. 116. Thus, without good cause, Defendants’ submitted their Response more than 15 hours after the deadline, as well as after the Court had directed the Clerk of the Court to enter Default and after the Clerk of the Court had entered the Default. As such, Defendants’ Response is untimely and the Court need not entertain it for this reason alone. And even if the Court were to consider the Response, the filing is not responsive to all of the issues in the Court’s Order to Show Cause because the Response does not address why Defendant Dillard failed to appear at his deposition in violation of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 37(d). See D.E. 113 at 2 (ordering Defendants to show cause for “Defendant Dillard’s failure to attend his own deposition”).
Guess what -- the case quickly settled thereafter.

PS -- Flo Rida made the Colbert show last night!

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…
