3d DCA Watch -- A Theme Is (Was) Developing.

It's gotten so cold inside the bunker they've started to unbolt the toilets and are actually burning porcelain-shaped concrete for warmth -- time to heat that free coffee up to a scorching 81 degrees.


Moriber v. Dreiling:


Save Calusa v. St. Andrews:


Falkinburg v. El Portal:

Hey, not boring!

You know that old trailer park off Biscayne where they are throwing out all the poor residents to make way for fancy new "development"?

Not so fast:
In sum, under section 723.083, the government agency – the Village of El Portal – before taking any action that would lead to the removal or relocation of the mobile home residents, had to determine if there existed adequate mobile home parks or other suitable facilities for Little Farm’s mobile home residents before it could take “official action.” Because the Village did not comply with the statute, the allegations in Falkinburg’s complaint were sufficient to state a cause of action under the applicable statute. Thus, the trial court erred in dismissing Falkinburg’s complaint, and the case is reversed and remanded to the trial court for expedited action.
Newsflash -- no such other suitable facilities exist anymore!


  1. What about yesterday's really well written decision by Salter. Nice to read a well reasoned and well written opinion.

  2. Yes and regarding the James L. Knight trust.

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…
