WTF Friday: Love & Happiness Edition



Hi Folks,

SFL called me out last week for being such a Debbie Downer on a Friday, so there'll be no more of that. I wont mention this, this, this, or this. Neither will I lament over the fact that the British Parliament seems far more responsive to the will of their people than the pork gobblers we've got.

This week it's all about Love & Happiness! And really the news from yesterday makes that a little easier. Ever since the gay marriage ruling back in the dark ages of June I was left with a lot of unanswered questions. What did this ruling mean for people like myself who are married in a gay marriage state but live in a backwards penal colony like Florida? Well we've finally got some answers and they answers that I like! Yesterday the Treasury Department announced nationwide tax equality for everyone legally married, regardless of the laws of the state they live in. Not only that, but we can now file amended returns back to 2010! I've only done the rough math for my unconventional family, and it's an onomatopoeia that goes something like this ~ Cha-Ching!

But the good news doesn't end there. Gay hippies won yet another victory in the form of acquiescence from the Justice Department to Washington and Colorado's smoking new marijuana legalization laws! Is this the beginning of the end for the war on drugs? We can only hope.

And hope is a good thing. Hope springs eternal. You must remember this. A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh. The fundamental things apply as we go bi.

So here we go on our lovely three day weekend and surprise, I've got 3 years of amended tax returns to joyfully file! There is love and happiness!

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…
