3d DCA Watch -- Baby You're a Rich Man Edition!

If you're like me and into both the Beatles and the law, you should check out this new book -- Baby You're a Rich Man: Suing the Beatles for Fun and Profit.

I especially like how the author relates the various ongoing legal battles with songs from the Mop Top's individual catalogs -- yes, all things must pass (even lawsuits).


Humana v. Real:

Judge Shepherd somehow makes Medicare reimbursement subrogation litigation interesting!

(I'm kidding, I'm heading back to the Beatles lawsuit book....)

Jesus v. HSBC:

You never know, but I'm pulling for Jesus on this one.

Happy Hump Day!


  1. Jesus is just alright with me.

  2. Nice win on the criminal side for Regional Counsel getting an 85 year sentence of a juvenile vacated.

  3. Happy Hump Day, SFL. Mwaaah!

  4. Read the Davon Francis opinion. It was Phil Reizenstein for Regional who crushed the state in front of three of the most conservative judges on the court.

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…
