3d DCA Watch -- Rainy Days and Bunkers Always Let Me Down.....

Are you wet and wild for some concrete slabs of bunker love?

(Did I just write that?  Sorry Mom, but that's $200+ thousand of your higher education dollars at work!)

Let's scoop up the detritus:

Gonzalez v. Barrenechea:

What is Raoul Cantero doing handling a bad AC installation dispute?

Oh I see -- the house has a rental value of $15.5k per month.

Interesting discussion on loss of use damages, with a dissent in part by Judge Suarez.

City of Miami v. JP Morgan:

Judge Shepherd ascends to his water, aggregate (rock, sand, or gravel) and Portland cement perch to lecture inform Judge Fernandez on the proper role of an appellate court.

Must have been awkward in the mechanical room/gym this morning!

Ruffa v. Saftpay:

Why wouldn't you pay attorneys' fees to a (potentially) prevailing party in a unpaid wages case that was tried to verdict?

Judge Rothenberg explains that the case evidently was a tie!

Hessen v. Schimmel:

A lawyer named Robert Schimmel got into a dispute with his former law firm.

Robert Schimmel?

That guy was a madman! (may he rest in peace).


  1. SFL: superb first line!

  2. Hansel v Gretel

  3. It's rainy where you are? Hmm, well it's sunny & warm up here---finally. You're always welcome to visit. :)

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…
