Monday Blahs

Good day everyone! If you're like me you spent the weekend feasting on the pleasures of the 21st century world. Like that naked swimming hole in south Georgia, delectability abounds. If you want to do Miami right, try the colossal stone crab plate at Joe's, followed by a moonlight stroll in South Point Park (where there's hardly any homeless any more), and then really kick your rumba into gear with a nightcap or ten at Hoy Como Ayer. Have you been to that place? It really is a time machine (today like yesterday). I halfway expected Ricky Ricardo to take the stage with a 10 piece band at any moment. The quality of acts they have performing there is impressive and some of the finest Miami has to offer.

How can Monday compete with that?

But enough about my indulgences, I'm just relieved to know that there are medical professionals like Pam Bondi there to put me back together after a long weekend of partying.

Wait, what? You didn't know our own Pam Bondi was a doctor? Neither did I until I reviewed her arguments against the proposed medical marijuana amendment at the hearing to determine the constitutionality of ballot language. Bondi was outraged at the idea that doctors could prescribe marijuana for any condition they considered "debilitating," even nominal, nondescript maladies like headaches and insomnia. Has Pam seen what doctors are able to prescribe for those conditions now? Popular sleeping pills like Ambien and Lunesta are linked to increased death rates, addiction, and overdose. Medicines for migraines can be equally harmful.

But there sits marijuana, with a better safety record than 99.9% of the drugs on the market, and Pam Bondi MD is worried about its abuse.

Blah.

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…
