The Long National War on Christmas is Over.

Hi kids, I need to recharge my batteries around Christmastime -- how about you?

For me that usually means at least three days of debauched, depraved, hedonistic activities punctuated by reckless abandon, excessive indulgence and no limits -- either that or I gather the family and try to help others.

Depends on my mood.

Choices, choices.

Whatever you do this week we wish you and yours a warm, loving and peaceful holiday -- however you celebrate.

See you next week!


  1. Enjoy your holiday break SFL. Hope you choose option one, I always do!

  2. War on Christmas? That's code for "prick Christians with a chip on their shoulder trying to justify the chip."

    Happy Holidays everyone!

  3. Happy Holidays, SFL.

    And yes, option #1 seems a lot of fun---besides I hear 'naughty' is the new 'nice.'

    Ho, Ho, Ho. :) Mwaaah!

  4. 2016 the rise of Shumie nation.....(ominous music)

    Wait...that's it?? No Xmas Spence message? The danger of xmas tree fires?? Lights that sizzle and snap and burn little tykes into total disfigurement? The choking hazard of small ornaments? Spoiled egg nog and e-coli ? (speaking of which, I gotta get me some of those Chipolte food poisoning cases- please refer)

    Please...I've had a bad enough holidays as it is....Need a SA fix. It would be my special xmas present. For all I've done, it's not too much to ask.

    PS- If you've been hit by an errant Christmas float, please call my office. Lawyers are standing by (a vicious bunch of Jews that don't celebrate christmas and have no problem shutting down a small church or municipality this time of year).

    PSS I know that;s politically incorrect, but I was going for a laugh. Not an anti-semite, indeed I'ma semite.

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…
