Magistrate Judge Goodman Goes Deep(ish)!

My eyes boggled -- is this a deep cut from our favorite loquacious pop-culture-citing Magistrate Judge (and in our favorite over-litigated case)?
“Why are we keeping secrets / Why don’t we both come clean and begin”
‐ Christine McVie, from the “Keeping Secrets” song1

As footnote one states, "[f]rom the 'Christine McVie' (Warner Bros., 1984) album, the second solo effort by the Fleetwood Mac vocalist and keyboardist."

So much better in the form of citation too -- just enough extraneous detail as to be informative and interesting!

Interesting order too -- what a surprise -- a party has over-designated tons of docs as "highly confidential" when there was in fact little basis for the designation.

Secrets, eh?

I love Christy, and respect the song choice -- here are few others on that theme off the top of my head:

Carly Simon, "We Have No Secrets":

 The Cure, "Secrets":

And of course:

The Beatles, "Do You Want to Know a Secret":

 This is fun -- please join in!

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…
