3d DCA Watch -- And Then There Was One.

How exciting!

Today is the day when the bunker is supposed to be answering all the important legal questions that keep us up at night, pointing us in the right direction through clear and concise legal prose, and providing grateful trial judges much needed guidance as they grind it out in the trenches.

Or they can just do this:

And this:

(The mechanical room is still not co-ed!)

Regardless, they only pumped out one civil opinion this week.

Back at it denizens -- summer's right around the corner!


  1. Rosa Rodriguez, reversed again! Pobrecita.

  2. chicken shit + SFL = chicken salad

  3. Another fantastic post by SFL. Also, so sloppy on the trial level.

  4. Love Rosa.. No nonsense. Takes no shit and awards fees and costs when games are played.

    I gotta get into these appeal with attorneys fees and all.

  6. Rosa is the worst judge at 73 W. Flagler. She's NEVER on time. She's rude, condescending & dumb. She will not get reelected. Plus, her track record with the JQC will have her off the bench ASAP.

  7. 11:02, I'm guessing you are a sloppy , dilatory lawyer whose conduct and tactics were not tolerated by Judge Rodriguez. She is extremely intelligent. At every hearing I have had before her she had already read all of the pleadings, done the research and was prepared to discuss the issues. I have only seen her pleasant and courteous, but she will not tolerate a fool. And by the way, there is zero chance of her not being re-elected.

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…
