3d DCA Watch -- Working It!

It's either the bright blast of sunshiny cold air or the new group conditioning classes being held in the mechanical room, but something got into the bunker and actually caused them to, you know, issue opinions -- nearly 10 civil orders in a single week!

But first, this:

Ok, let's do the highlights:

Grove Isle Assoc. v. Grove Isle Associates:

I love it when I read who the lawyers are on the appeal, and who they represent, and predict whether they won or not, and guess correctly!

Here it's always smart to bet on Lauri Waldman Ross.

State Farm v. Reyes:

This is yet another offer of judgment opinion in which the appellant was represented by Elizabeth K. Russo.

See, this is easy!

Trans Healthcare v. Creekmore:

The appellee here was represented by former Chief Judge Joel Brown.


(I could do this all day.)


  1. Poor Juan Ramirez ( you figure it out )

  2. That looks like patty seitz on the left and Melanie Damian's grandmother on the right .

  3. Suzanne Somers is a Republican. And I thought she was only pretending to be stupid.

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…
