Happy Transvaginal Friday!

I could have been a proctology professor!
A Florida college that allegedly forced students to perform vaginal ultrasounds on each other as part of a medical training program has permanently banned the practice.

Valencia State College's president announced Tuesday the school's medical diagnostic sonography program would "permanently discontinue the use of student volunteers for transvaginal ultrasound scanning." The move comes after two students filed a federal lawsuit claiming college administrators threatened to lower their grades and blacklist them in the medical community if they didn't consent to the exams.

"Following a comprehensive external investigation and a thorough internal review, we identified teaching methods that employ sophisticated simulators and have decided to permanently discontinue the use of student volunteers for transvaginal ultrasound scanning," President Sandy Shugart said in a statement.

The lawsuit, filed by two students who were enrolled in 2013 in the competitive sonography program, claimed that during orientation, a second-year student nicknamed the "TransVag Queen" explained they should undergo transvaginal ultrasound procedures to become better technicians.
I don't see what all the fuss is about. Turns out transvaginal probes are "just a cool thing for women"! I imagine they can be very cool, even quite cold in Wisconsin. You first governor!
We defunded Planned Parenthood, we signed a law that requires an ultrasound. Which, the thing about that, the media tried to make that sound like that was a crazy idea. Most people I talk to, whether they're pro-life or not, I find people all the time who'll get out their iPhone and show me a picture of their grandkids' ultrasound and how excited they are, so that's a lovely thing. I think about my sons are 19 and 20, you know we still have their first ultrasound picture. It's just a cool thing out there.
Why is it conservatives are always up in your private parts?

LLAP readers, happy weekend!

  1. Still trying to figure out how that's supposed to work. Does Walker really think people are going to be carrying around the ultrasounds of the fetuses they aborted? #sick

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…
