3d DCA Watch -- The Great Gig in the Bunker!

 Aahhh, summertime in the bunker, and the livin' is easy.

Only two opinions, neither dealing with any civil matters, and several "citation opinions" like this one:
Before SHEPHERD, C.J., and WELLS and SALTER, JJ.


Affirmed. N. Carillon, LLC v. CRC 603, LLC, 135 So. 3d 274 (2014).
Question -- in what sense is that an "opinion"?

Then you have a slew of PCAs like this one:
Before SHEPHERD, C.J., and SUAREZ and LAGOA, JJ.


Nice work if you can get it!

(Applications accepted here.)


  1. What is that clip from?

  2. Thank you again for making a yummy chicken salad from pure chicken shit.

  3. It is an opinion in a very subtle way: "Hey Appellant. We would have PCA'd this straight up but the reason we are not giving it the time of day is because of this case. If you read it to begin with you probably never would have filed the appeal. Next time, don't waste our time."

  4. I'm genreally not a fan of Floyd covers but this is pretty darn good!

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…
