3d DCA Watch -- Bagism for Beginners Edition!

Sorry I'm a day late and more than a dollar short on this week's 3d DCA Watch, but "life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans" said somebody smart and consequential who also got into a bag for peace, anyhoo let's move on and here we are, so there.

Isn't it cool that Judge Garland has never been reversed?

Fun fact:  Justice Rehnquist's houses all had restrictive covenants (but they were unenforceable due to a 1948 Supreme Court ruling he probably didn't support at the time, doesn't that cure everything?).


Surprise -- no one understands proposals for settlement!

Congrats Judge Ramirez!

You cannot appeal from orders you agreed to.

Miami can't force its way into Key Biscayne's case against the County over that stupid boat show.

Aaah, somebody's crushing on Judge Cueto:
We affirm the trial court’s detailed, scholarly, and painstaking order on all points. 
"Detailed, scholarly, and painstaking" -- I'm putting that phrase on my Tinder profile!

 Happy whatevs!


  1. Bagism ~ the method by which Donald Trump's wife has sex with him without vomiting.

  2. I like that proposal for settlement case. Don't mention releases in a PFS. Just stick with what the Rule says it has to say.

  3. Rameriz will be out of Diaz firm quickly. Just like Isreal who bolted when he found out what these rascals were up to.

  4. The Law of Attraction/The Secret...success story?

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…
