  1. Happy St. Patrick's Day, SFL.

  2. That looks like an interesting CLE, but doesn't Ultra start that day? It's going to be hard to hear about the SEC Whistleblower Program over the deafening thuds of bass from across the street.

    Besides, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near downtown on March 27--traffic is going to be nuts.

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.

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.

He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
