BACK IN MIAMI
Back in Miami.
First Monday without Monday Night Football. Luckily my Madden NFL for Playstation arrived today.
Hank Adorno- remember him? He gets 2 million per seven clients. By contract.
Got a bar complaint. Won one count, lost one count from the referee - a North of the Border Judge who really stretched the law to give ol'Hank the benefit of the doubt about lying to Circuit Judge Peter Lopez:
Can the referee say with ‘precise explicit, lacking in confusion and of such weight that it produces a firm belief or conviction, without hesitation about the matter’ that respondent Adorno misled Judge Lopez and was less than forthright in the hearing? The answer is no.”
Gee: - How can we get six people like Tuter on our juries?
Broward Circuit Judge Tuter had this to say on the 2 mll fee:
But Tuter concluded, “No rational person could explain how seven individual plaintiffs ... could end up dividing $5 million in settlement proceeds and their attorneys $2 million.”
Rumpole notes- at least one rational person thought it was ok- Hank A.
First one of the year- See You in Court!!!
