The Silicon Chip Inside Her Head Gets Switched To Overload...

Sometimes blogging is hard, thankless work. But other times the posts just write themselves. For example:
The Florida Supreme Court has suspended indefinitely a lawyer who drew attention with assertions that others controlled and tortured her through a microchip illegally implanted in her brain. 
Janice L. Jennings, 55, may not accept new clients and must cease representing existing ones after Aug. 1, the court ordered, acting on a emergency petition from the Florida Bar.
She was ordered to undergo evaluation by the nonprofit Florida Lawyers Assistance organization and by a private psychologist or psychiatrist to be named by a Bar referee.
The court asked Pinellas-Pasco Chief Judge J. Thomas McGrady to choose the referee — typically a county, circuit or senior judge who will act as an agent of the Supreme Court while the Bar assumes the role of prosecutor. 
The suspension is a temporary measure intended to protect potential clients while Jennings gets due process and while the Bar makes its case. 
"The Bar could still move for disbarment or a lengthy suspension," said spokeswoman Francine Walker. "There are many more steps that could be taken after the emergency suspension."


It is highly unlikely that Ms. Jennings really does have a chip implanted in her brain, but it's not entirely outside the realm of possibilities.

  2. HI - this is Spencer Arronfeld. As many of you know, the CIA has been putting chips into people's heads and controlling their thoughts for years. But most people don't know that the CIA needs your permission to do this. If you think you have a chip in your head that you didn't agree to, you may be entitled to a cash reward. Call 1-888- no-chips. Lawyers from my firm are standing by to help you.

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…
