Truth or Consequences/Schoolboy Blues -- A Reinterpretation!


Here's a reinterpretation of that order from yesterday using a different jumping off point:
In 1970, toward the end of the Rolling Stones' contract with Decca Records, the label demanded that the Stones release their final single on Decca per contract before they could move to their self-owned record label, Rolling Stones Records.  In a farewell "flip off" to the staid suited Decca record execs, the Stones recorded a wildly salacious number that had no hope of ever becoming a hit record for their former label.  The bawdy lyrics, unprintable for the most part here, include "I ain't got no money/But I know where to put it every time."

In the instant copyright infringement case, Plaintiff, Lorelei Television, C.A. (“Plaintiff” or “Lorelei”) did not "know where to put it every time" in discovery and it now must do what the schoolboy in that infamous song must do -- confront the consequences. Unlike the consequences envisioned in Mick Jagger's parting shot to his former label, however, the consequences here will not be happy for Plaintiff. On the other hand, the consequences will fall short of the full‐fledged happiness enjoyed by that young lonesome schoolboy in Leicester Square.
Hey, this is fun!

  2. Arguably the best judge -- USMJ or USDJ -- in the Southern District.

  3. Judge Rosenbaum is now getting in on the music reference action: http://media.ca11.uscourts.gov/opinions/unpub/files/201313900.pdf

    It looks like we have a can-you-top-this music reference battle between Judges Carnes, Rosenbaum, and Goodman. So. Fla, you decide the winner.

  4. Good catch! Gotta give it to Robin -- the reference is to a cool Billy Preston song, the reference actually fits in context, plus she's Robin.

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…
