3d DCA Watch -- That Delicately Cured Meat from the City of Canals Has Been Broughten!

Let's get this pity bunker party started with a bang:

Frau v. JP Morgan:



Bymal v. BoA:

This is a curious way to start an opinion:
Albertelli Law represented Bank of America in the proceedings below, and Bymel served Albertelli Law with his notice of appeal. This Court issued an order directing Bank of America to file an answer brief within ten days from the date of the order or be precluded from filing a brief and/or presenting an oral argument. Bank of America failed to file an answer brief as directed by this Court. Thereafter, this Court issued an order precluding Bank of America from filing an answer brief or presenting an oral argument unless otherwise ordered, but allowed Bank of America to file a memorandum of points and authorities in support of its position. As of this date, Bank of America has not filed anything in this appeal.
Ok, can someone explain how that could happen?

Russell v. Leaders Bank:

Great, just what we needed -- more "clarity" on offers of judgment:
As the law relating to offers of settlement has developed, best practice has come to dictate that a party who conditions an offer of settlement on receipt of a release, even the well understood and usually non-controversial general release, should attach the proposed release to the offer lest the offer be deemed “ambiguous” under the “nonmonetary terms” particularity requirement of Rule 1.442(c)(2)(D). However, failure to attach the release is not necessarily fatal.
Everyone got that?

Rollet v. Gwenaelle:

Judge Emas brought the Venetian Salami and it tastes oh so good!

Carry on, jurisdictional meat lovers!


  1. Another great post, SFL. Albertelli Law better get the carrier on the line.

  2. I love citing Venetian Salami (and Harry Pepper).

  3. Nice Salami SFL! But I bet you hear that all the time!

  4. You linked to the wrong Russell opinion.

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…
