SFL Friday -- Bring the Pain!



Hi kids, here's what is sloshing around in my noggin this am:

1.  Free candy handouts to poor people -- this Obama guy never quits!

2.  How do you get the Governor to show for a deposition -- hold a fundraiser:
Attorney Steven R. Andrews was prepared to put the governor under oath in Tallahassee, but Scott's communications director, Frank Collins, said Thursday that "there is not going to be a deposition tomorrow." Scott's lawyers asked the judge to quash the deposition but, as of late Thursday, they hadn't received an answer.

Scott is instead expected to attend a fundraiser at the Biltmore in Coral Gables, featuring former Gov. Jeb Bush, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera.

However, if the governor is a no-show for a deposition in a case he initiated, it may not be without consequences.

According to California's rules of civil procedure, the governor must submit to the deposition today unless he has received the court's permission to change the date, said Walter Clark, a trial lawyer who practices in Southern California.
No doy!

Last I checked, parties can't unilaterally cancel a deposition unless they get a court order in advance. 

Or do special rules apply to our Governator?

3.   No quicker way to clear a courtroom.

4.  Enough with these red light cameras.

5.  Early vote, plebes!

Have a great weekend!

  1. It's not the poor kids trick or treating that bothers me, it's the poor adults.

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…
