Jeffrey Epstein -- What a Schmuck!


The swirling turd that is Jeffrey Epstein continues to stain everything he touches:
New court filings are bringing fresh attention to a Florida sex scandal that could become grist for political trouble in the 2016 Presidential campaign.
The new legal filings allege that federal prosecutors in Florida “repeatedly” and “intentionally” violated the rights of dozens of teenage sex abuse victims by secretly negotiating an “extraordinarily lenient” deal with a wealthy Palm Beach financier known in the past to have socialized with powerful business and political figures -- including former President Bill Clinton and current GOP front-runner Donald Trump.
Prosecutors went to great lengths to keep secret the non-prosecution agreement reached in 2007 with Jeffrey Epstein, attorneys for the victims allege, “because of the strong objection they would have faced from victims of Epstein’s abuse, and because of the public criticism that would have resulted from allowing a politically-connected billionaire who had sexually abused more than 30 minor girls to escape ... with only a county court jail sentence.”
Throughout the negotiations -- and for nearly a year after the agreement was signed -- the victims were kept in the dark, their attorneys said, strung along as government lawyers promised victims they were still investigating even long after they had cut Epstein an “indulgent” deal.
Some candidates running for President say we live in two Americas -- justice for some, or justice for none.

How should we view this debacle, and the lawyer participants?

  3. Thankfully, there are sites that make this a lot easier, and some who even rank lawyers based on different factors. When comparing lawyers, some of the things you want to look for are amount of experience, area of expertise, and a lawyer that will maintain a good relationship with you. Personal Injury Lawyer

  4. Dear Mr. President:

    For too long the Supreme Court has ignored the doctrine of forum non convenience for cruise ship passengers injured by the total criminal negligence of super corporation cruise ship owners.

    You can address this inequity.

    I am a cruise ship plaintiff's attorney of some renown. (BTW if you're thinking of taking a post presidency cruise next January, I highly recommend against it. These things tip over, Hunta Virus, and you have Gladys and Ira from LaCrosse Wisconsin chasing you all over the ship for a week for an autograph and at sea there's little hope to hide.)

    I am young, healthy (cross fit bro) photogenic- a certifiable you-tube star, and lets just say we see eye-to-eye on lots of issues.

    I am placing my name in contention for the supreme court judgship for the late departed Nino scalia.

    Want a confirmable candidate?
    A nice jewish boy from Miami- you can't do much better than that. You make the call and I'll bring the ruggalah to the white house bubby.

    Awaiting coordination from your office of legal affairs, I remain,

    Your Obt svt

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…
