Dan Marino Hires Philly Lawyer to File Concussion Lawsuit!

Hey Dan, you gave us a lot of great memories.

You are a hero, a legend, an ingrained part of our shared cultural heritage.

But listen, there are plenty of good lawyers in South Florida (some of whom have filed concussion lawsuits for other NFL players).

What are we, chopped liver?

(Don't answer that.)

But if you want to read Big Dan's concussion lawsuit against the NFL, it's here.

BTW -- we still love you, but hire local next time, ok?

UPDATE:  Marino withdraws from own lawsuit.


  1. Maybe he went with a Philly lawyer because the case is in Penn? But yeah, I'm kind of shocked he didn't go with Spencer...

  2. For what it's worth, this is an MDL and Anapol Schwartz has a lot of experience in personal-injury MDLs. S. Fla. attorneys may have the edge when it comes to bringing consumer class actions, but, save Colson Hicks, I get the impression that we have fewer attorneys who specialize in big-time personal-injury MDLs. Sorry to be a hater.

  3. He was going to go with this guy but someone talked him out of it.

  4. 12:32 so we are chopped liver.

  5. Someone getting a referral fee out of it at least?

  6. Uh, 12:32 - Podhurst Orseck?????? If I am not mistaken, they have a co-chair of the MDL committee in the NFL litigation.

  7. Who is pothole horseshack?

  8. Spencer's second home in beautiful Miami Lakes.

  9. I believe that Dan filed this suit to cover his out of marriage affair and child. That way he can tell Clair that the football concussions caused him to stray.

  10. There, the director refused to provide emails on the basis that the emails sent by him as director were intermingled with emails sent by him as a solicitor in his own capacity, and those emails may contain privileged communications.criminal attorney

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…
