No Need to Troll, Judge -- We Got You!

I know it may seem like a Bob Dylan reference is a surefire way to get our attention (and it is!), but don't worry Judge G -- we like all of your references!
In his famous “The Times They Are a‐Changing” song, Bob Dylan advised listeners to “admit that the waters around you have grown and accept it that soon you’ll be drenched to the bone.” The consequences of major changes, the subject that Mr. Dylan was singing about, are at the heart of this Sherman Act antitrust lawsuit seeking several hundred million dollars in treble damages.

But may I make a recommendation?

Listen, I love that song as much as the next Dylanphile, but the dude's released something like 75 albums and is still going strong -- his latest release looks very interesting btw.

Go deeper!  There's a whole station on Sirius devoted to "deep tracks" -- challenge us a little!

(We'll follow you, I promise.)

How's this:
In his epic, brooding 1976 release "Desire," Bob Dylan advised a mysterious "sister" that "when I come to knock on your door/Don't turn away you'll create sorrow/Time is an ocean but it ends at the shore/You may not see me tomorrow." Just as time is an ocean, so too is a lawsuit, and this one ends at the shore -- i.e., by my granting summary judgment.  You may see the 11th Circuit tomorrow.
I'm just riffing here.

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…
