ZLOCH SAVES RUMPOLE?

UPDATE- WE WENT 10-6 on picking all games yesterday. Assuming we wagered 100K a game, we're up $340,000.00 for the day. (1,000,000 win -600,000 -60,000 (vig) )


Courtesy of the Daily Pulp, the title to the post links to Judge Zloch's extraordinary order suspending Attorney Loring Spolter from practice in the Southern District of Florida for 42 months, and imposing fines and attorneys fees of over $100,000.00.


We have no dog in that fight.


But this passage from the order caught our wizened eye:


Mr. Spolter has the absolute right to

criticize a judge, but what he does not have the right to do is to file pleadings in Federal court for an improper purpose and in bad faith.


Our response is: Really? All this time we've been ducking bar complaints and sanctions for running this blog and now we have a Federal Judge in writing saying it's ok for us to criticize a Judge- a Federal Judge no less?


We want to see the appellate opinion on this, no disrespect meant to Judge Zloch (although apparently we can do that if we want), but.....we just think we need a firmer foundation upon which to rest our decision to reveal our identity.


Until then....

THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:

Unbelievable sound video of the shots being fired at that courthouse in LV. You can hear at least 70 rounds of gunfire.
