"Dear, Let's Consolidate in Order to Provide Greater National and International Bench Strength!"

Hey, is it just me or is this a thoroughly sexist way for The Gray Lady to describe the Senator from Massachusetts:
In her day job, Ms. Warren cuts an imperious swath through the Capitol, striding down hallways, her jewel-toned jacket swaying behind her, refusing to speak to or even make eye contact with reporters. Small talk with elevator operators and other staff? Not her style. And the Democrat from Massachusetts is rarely front and center pushing major legislation.
So you're saying she's a TOUGH SCHEMING BITCH-ON-WHEELS?

How original guys, keep that up!

TDF's Davis said because of both firms' shared approach to sectors and commitment to building up a US presence, joining was 'a very natural decision'. 'The landscape of law in the US is changing. Law firms are consolidating in order to provide greater national and international bench strength to their clients,' he said. 'We now have huge potential to further expand in Florida and to play a part in Clyde & Co's US growth story.'
To my pal Barry, congratulations you sweet talker you and enjoy the post-merger connubial bliss hearty distribution!

Finally, I'll be taking my usual summer break, to recharge my gin-soaked batteries, refresh the solar unit on my digital camera to the world, and in general enjoy some connubial bliss of my own.

See you in a few, in the meantime the usual gang of inciteful insightful nudnicks will hopefully entertain you intermittently.

And that's a promise!


  1. Enjoy your summer SFL!!

  2. Mwaaah!!

    It's gonna be an awesome summer!!

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…
