Hondling for Depositions (or Deposition Hours)!

The defendant wants another 49 hours from seven witnesses (including a corporate rep), the plaintiff wants zero -- time to hondle:
For the reasons outlined below, the Court grants in part and denies in part Patheon’s motion. Patheon may take one seven‐hour 30(b)(6) deposition and may take a total of seven hours of deposition from one or more of the six fact witnesses mentioned in Patheon’s motion. Thus, Patheon will be able to take 14 (not 49) hours of additional depositions. The depositions will be in Miami.
Wait --so now it's like a Chinese buffet -- one corporate rep and then conceivably one+ hour each from six more witnesses?

The defendant will be hungry in another hour!

Question -- who won this motion?


  1. Breaking!

    Miccosukee tribe fires Bernardo Roman III as its lawyer and requires tribal police escort off the reservation!

    E stay toon!

  2. actually the math adds up in bernie's favor . . . if you were a ham and schlepper would you sell your law license for a couple of million a year for 4 or 5 years? bernie's lifetime earnings were just made in one in clump. hopefully banked and lived tight the last few years.

  3. when meester romans gots into twoble with honorable shush....


    the anchor man, taking down everyone around him

  4. cant wait for the perp walk for that little criminal.

    man, did he rape the Indians.

    wait until it comes out how much money he has stolen/embezzled from them.

  5. Hope he has malpractice insurance. Although that won't cover his fees for his federal criminal defense lawyer.

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…
