3d DCA Watch -- I'm Gonna Git You Sucka!

Hah hah everyone has to work now, the summer's over, time to rise and grind, even in the hallowed concrete halls of the bunker, which -- like the rumored long-lost Nazi gold train buried in the mountain tunnels of Lower Silesia, is very very musty, heavily fortified, and undoubtedly booby-trapped:

Dadd v. Houde:

This doesn't seem very neighborly:
This is a boundary dispute involving a strip of land approximately six and one-half feet wide and seventy-nine and one-half feet long. The strip is contiguous to the parcel containing Ann Dadd’s home and has been enclosed, along with the rest of the Dadd property, by a substantial fence since 1976 or earlier. However, the strip is within the legal description of the property owned by her next-door neighbor, Richard Houde.

Publix v. Hernandez:

Rare writ of cert granted in slip-and-fall!

Gersten v. Sorondo:

In an epic battle of ex-bunker dwellers, Rudy Rudy Rudy comes out on top:
CT Miami, LLC (“CT Miami”) appeals the trial court’s order denying its motion to stay arbitration without an evidentiary hearing. Because we agree with the trial court that CT Miami did not raise a substantial issue regarding the agreement to arbitrate, we affirm the trial court’s ruling.
Judge Thornton affirmed (he was a "cautious coachman")!

And that's how the cookie crumbles....

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…
