Mark Gold Redux.



Our friends at Random Pixels broke this distressing story about Ticket Clinic founder Mark Gold.

From the Herald:
Mark S. Gold, a prominent Miami traffic ticket lawyer who is suing a downtown strip club over a $19,000 bill, was arrested Wednesday on allegations he attacked his fiancée because he was upset over Facebook posts.

Miami Beach police jailed Gold, founder of the Ticket Clinic law firms, on Wednesday afternoon. The charge: felony domestic battery.

The 58-year-old was found walking near the Rivo Alto bridge after his fiancée called police to report a domestic disturbance. His face had been battered during a confrontation. According to an arrest report, his fiancée had just flown in from Texas.

At his home on posh Rivo Alto island, Gold confronted her “over things he found on Facebook about her,” the arrest report said. The argument escalated and Gold “struck her with his hand and then pushed her to the ground,” according to the report.
Ok, this is becoming a bit Spencer's World -- (1) stay out of strip clubs; (2) stay off Facebook......

This is a sad situation, I hope things get back on track.

  6. Don't blame this in Facebook. The fact that our private information and interpersonal relationships have been voluntarily reduced to a corporate commodity, you can blame on Facebook. Hitting a loved one just means you're an arsehole.

  7. 1- Strip clubs are a den of iniquity. Not to mention the germs. Mersa anyone?

    2- Facebook? Boy am I looking for a good lawsuit against them. Anything from carpal tunnel syndrome from posting too much, to catching your slutty 21 year old finance from Dallas posting semi nude selfies causing a domestic violence incident at a posh Miami Beach Address.

    3-BTW I am also looking to pick up cases against the cell phone industry (texting while driving-attractive nuisance doctrine revived!) brain tumors, and dangerously devised instruments (little known fact but many cell phones can be quickly transformed into a deadly missile hurled with devastating accuracy and consequences).

    The lawyers at Spencer's World, where our motto is: if a Person designed it, it can kill or horribly maim you necessitating in a lawsuit where you don't pay any attorney fees unless you recover money.

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…
