3d DCA Watch -- "Members Only" Historical Society Luncheon Edition!

The bunker was very busy this week, putting out a boring arbitration opinion and....well, that's about it.

So let's preview the exciting "Members Only" Historical Society luncheon:
On May 15, 2015, the Third District Court of Appeal Historical Society will hold its 2015 Members Only Biennial Luncheon with the Judges at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida.
Not a member?

Bunkerites, it's not too late to join!

Here's a taste of what you'll see:

First, a detailed presentation on the fascinating history of the construction of the bunker.

From its earliest origins:

 To its dazzling, breathtaking completion:

Pretty impressive, huh?

The Historical Society also digs deep into the bunker archives to find original artifacts and unretouched photographs of the original mechanical room/gym -- long before its many facelifts, remodeling, and multimillion dollar wholesale expansion and renovation.

Here it is in its original form:

And here is the bunker's new, modern completely redone state of the art exercise complex and juice bar emporium/mechanical room:

Gosh how time flies.

You won't want to miss this!!

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. 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…
