3d DCA Watch -- Wednesday Morning Coming Down.

Hi kids it's that time when the bunker once again intrudes right into the middle of our work week.

And they don't even ask or anything!

Ok, let's humor them and listen politely to what they have to say so we can get back to work:

Gonzalez v. Barrenechea:

Judge Suarez' dissent is so good they printed it twice!

(Better click quickly before they correct it.)

Miccosukee Tribe v. Bermudez:

Rare tribal victory on taxable costs issue.

American Heritage v. Morales:

Basically don't drink and do anything, or the insurer will apply the alcohol exclusion and deny your claim.

Happy Wednesday!!!


  1. What's next, an exclusion for lysergic acid diethylamide and assless leather chaps?

    My day is ruined! Oh look, candy!

  2. Me loving the Huckabee

  3. I am hoping to get an internship at a law firm this summer. I need to get some experience before I go to law school. I hear that law school is extremely hard. If I want to complete my dream of working at a law firm I will have to do it.

  4. @4:06

    I'd get tested for STDs.

  5. So, in sum: Bermudez, the man whose wife was killed and son injured by a drunk tribe member in a car accident and who has a $4+ million judgment, now owes the tribe over $70,000. Might be the correct legal ruling, but, wow, what a terrible result.

  6. You get what you pay for .....hire a sorry or pair of civil lawyers making side deals with the adverse party (tribe) to your detriment and that's what happens. it was a slam dunk case and they fuxkwd it up. 3 million is a slip and fall. Shitty hack lawyers.

  7. How is this type of unholy ménage à trois of colluding attorneys, of adverse parties, to the detriment of the client, permitted in the practice of law???

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…
