3d DCA Watch -- Jesus Christ I'm Bored Edition!

Sorry my head space yesterday got consumed with runaway Nazis and voter fraud (also Big Stu!), but I'm back and ready to rise and grind!

But is our bunker?

Jesus Christ this should be obvious:
In sum, reviewing the order as well as the trial judge’s comments in making its ruling we conclude the order at issue did not dismiss the action or case, but only dismissed the complaint with leave to amend upon a showing that the Barbados action had been terminated. The September 23, 2013 order denying Branch’s motion to amend based on a determination that the court lacked jurisdiction to consider that motion by virtue of dismissal of this action on April 29, is, therefore, contrary to both the letter and certainly the intent of that order.
It also is incorrect as a matter of law. “An order of dismissal granting leave to amend is interlocutory in nature until expiration of the amendment period and entry of final judgment by the trial court.”
Seriously, what lawyer led Judge Eig into that kind of fundamental error?

God I need to focus today.

Friggin' Hague Service Convention:
When process is served and return of process is completed by an official of a country that is a signatory to the Hague Service Convention in accordance with Article 6 of the Convention, as it was here, that service is sufficient, and any additional requirement which may be imposed by Florida law is pre-empted.
Again, that should be obvious.

Ok, I'm sick of writing things that should be obvious to anyone with half a sentient thought.


Alright, one more:

You need to preserve error.

(Did I really just write that?)

I'm done.

I feel a little better now.


  1. I'm glad I gave up on trying to write one of your DCA Watch thingies. I am powerful beyond measure. Galaxies shake with my every breath. But I could have never written that!

  2. Funniest 3d DCA watch in a long time!

  3. He's an original.

  4. I hope Cooke throws the book at Stu.

  5. If you're feeling bored SFL, you could always play "Bolero" on full blast. :))

  6. Great job, and in answer to your question the Court actually quoted the lawyer and mentioned him by name.

  7. Hello, this is a awesome!!)Thanks all!

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…
