He's (Almost) Back!



I'm talking Big Hank of course:
Henry “Hank” Adorno, once an influential lawyer in Miami, is likely to get his law license back after being suspended for more than three years. A judge has recommended that the Florida Supreme Court reinstate him.

In 2010, the Supreme Court upheld a lower-court ruling that cited “reprehensible” behavior by Adorno for collecting huge legal fees while excluding almost all Miami property owners from a $7 million class-action settlement against the city over illegally imposed fire fees.

In recommending his reinstatement, Broward Circuit Judge Jack Tuter found that Adorno “showed a sense of repentance and remorse, as well as the desire and intention to conduct himself in an exemplary fashion in the future.”
Anyone know who he will partner up with?

  6. The Florida Supreme Court frequently rejects the recommendation of the referee, so I don't know that it's "likely" that Adorno is back.

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…
