Just a Procaps Song Lyric Before I Go!

It's only taken 1047 docket entries but we are nearing then end of the Procaps saga, prompting Magistrate Judge Goodman to wax lyrical (is anyone surprised?):
In his 1977 hit song, English singer/songwriter/guitarist Dave Mason, co‐founder of the band Traffic, explained: “There ain’t no good guy, there ain’t no bad guy, There’s only you and me and we just disagree.”  
The song lyric phrase “we just disagree” can surely be applied to the relationship between Plaintiff Procaps S.A. (“Procaps”) and Defendant Patheon Inc. (“Patheon”) in this  antitrust  lawsuit.  Procaps  and  Patheon  have  disagreed  about  pretty much everything in this case, which is now on appeal and which was filed in December 2012. 
Good reference, but not sure you needed to drive it home so explicitly.

Actually, with this crowd it's better to be safe than sorry.

Carry on my wayward sons (to the 11th Circuit)!

    I need to get in on this anti-trust litigation Bill-able hours. The answer to my up and down (mostly up) plaintiff's practice.

    How hard can it be? I think I got an 89 in anti-t.

    Some depos. Some motions. Get my doc review department off their collective arses and into gear.

    I'm hearing 20K a month in income stream. Music to my ears.

    Not a cruise ship on the rocks of Gov cut (and please g-d, just one in my lifetime. Pretty pretty please?)
    Not a good old fashioned crew member assault on an elderly passenger. Not even a slip and fall ankle sprain at the mid-night buffet. (My bread and butter. Ha ha . Get it? Midnight buffet? Bread and Butter? I got a million of em.)

    But still all in all, I need some of this anti-trust love and I need it now.

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…
