It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!



By that I mean the phone calls are dropping off, email traffic is way down, the orders are dwindling to a halt, motions for extension are being happily requested and granted, depositions and hearings are being scheduled for mid to late January (at the earliest), you just finished attending the 19th holiday party, the break room is filled with food and drink from clients and colleagues not the least bit consistent with your new "healthy" lifestyle, and no one really feels like working anymore.

Yes Virginia, there really is a (white) Santa Claus!

  7. It doesn't really have a name, although if I were to give it one I'd call it "Cuban Missile Crisis."

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.

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

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…
