Aronfeld on Daubert!



The gloves glasses are off -- that means he's serious:

(BTW, I agree with him on this.)

  1. You agree Daubert makes it more difficult to "attain justice"? I don't think so. It simply prevents an "expert" from presenting her "subjective belief and unsupported speculation" to the jury. Shouldn't that have always been the case?

  2. I have no problem with Daubert and I'm usually in federal court anyway. But the Frye standard had its charms too -- are you saying it allowed too much bogus testimony? That hadn't been my (admittedly more limited) experience.

  3. SFL -- I agree with him too, except for one thing: Hasn't Daubert been the law in Florida since July 2013? (If I'm mistaken I've been malpracticing (in case this message ever gets back to me, I'm joking)!).

  4. To whom is that video directed? To an accident victim who he'd like to sign up? Doesn't that video (let's assume for the sake of argument he's right, which he's not) dissuade an accident victim from filing a lawsuit since they'll allegedly have a harder time attaining justice?

  5. SFL is being charitable to Aronfart.

  7. "Based solely on his opinion" says it all. Spencer, where did you get that jacket, who told you to wear it with that tie, and what's a "cude"?

  9. Opinions must be based on science. What a concept.

  12. I would hire him to do my wedding just to see what he would wear and say. I think he is happier marrying people than the people are getting married

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…
