GOOD FRIDAY

UPDATED: It's not Good Friday for everyone: Hank Adorno suspended for three years. The Supreme Court decision is here. Rumpole tip: it never bodes well for you when the decision of the Florida Supreme Court uses the word "egregious" over ten times to describe your conduct.
(Hat tip: South Florida Lawyers).

Friday is Good Friday and state courts are closed. (Plenty of Parking in Lot 26!)

Who knew?

Oy vey.


DOM has the news on some NGs in a mortgage fraud case and on former Southern District Assistant Federal Public Defender- and the current Federal Public Defender for San Diego (talk about winning the lottery!) Reuben Cahn arguing before the Supremes.

The JAABlog has Browierd sinking to a new low and prosecuting a 90 year old man for domestic violence.

Senator Ensign (R-Adulterer) Nevada will resign on Friday.

Good Friday means Satisfying Saturday and Easter Sunday. Enjoy.

Watch our Twitter this weekend for any developments.

Rump- If you were applying the lawyers at the REGJB to the Deadliest Catch who would be who?

L&L Twins would be the Hillstrandt Brothers.

Jim Best=Capt Keith Colburn and Blecher=his brother Monty.

Who would be Sig Hansen and his brother Edgar?

north of the border in the Fatherland of Satztika, prosecution of 90 year old defendants are the truest examples that justice is just as blind as a 90 year old.

Uncle Vanya-

I bring greetings from the Owl. I am sorry to inform you the Sparrow is under the weather.

Have you secured your Dolphin seats for next year?

Section 120 is a good one.

The Bar be Que down south in Dadeland is been wanting lately.

The Elk says Burton is at 1010. Or try 1800.

He probably does have some feet issues," Clinkscales said during the Jets' draft press conference today. "I get if you're talking about a guy that was once 380 pounds, 335 pound pounds now. He's a good player, strong, physical. He's been at Baylor a couple of years, after Penn State.

Brilliant strategy by Rosen for dealing with the bar after the federal mortgage fraud indictment, stop paying bar dues and get suspended for non payment rather than have to comply with bar investigation.

Let's see if she gets her license back now.

Don Rump I have a dilemma and turn to you for guidance. I am working hard in the office on Good Friday. What are the rules for calling the Shumie?

Anonymous said...

Whatever happened to L&L twins hot associate? Miss her.

Shumie Time Referree said...

I can answer the Sumie time question if Rumpole will alow it.

The rules clearly states (and I am referring to 2:3-1(a)) that the term Shumie Time specifically applies to leaving work DURING working hours. Therefore, much like you need not (and indeed cannot) call the Shumie on a Saturday, nor can you call Shumie Time today as working today constitues working above and beyond normal working hours.

Hope this helps.

Dyadya Vanya:

The cold war is over”. May I sell you some prime beach front property in the Gulf of Mexico region?

Excuse me, could we have met in Malta in 1999, or perhaps Bangkok lady May?

Windows are shattered in a storm. Can you help board them up?

Please stop American fool.

Rumpole, why do post this Shumie and Vasily crap?

??? said...

I humbly submit that the Shumie Time Referee got it wrong. The proper response to the question about Shumie Time, given the season would have been this:

Why is this Shumie Time different from all others?

Can the shumie be called if a woman is on your mind?

And I I humbly submit Shumie Time Rules need reworking.

Uncle Vanya said...

Vasily. Meet me at the toy store tomorrow. Usual time. The Sparrow will be with me. The Owl is still ill. Time to take out the Garbage re: Burton.

As Uncle Joe said " you have to crack some eggs to make an omlette."

YOU CANT HANDLE THE SHUMIE said...

8:36 PM: we live in a world that has DUIS, and those DUIS have to be defended by men. When Al Milian had a DUI in Broward who did he call? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? You Catalano? You Reiff? You Johnny No Slope? You 007 of DUIs? NO! HE CALLED SHUMIE!

I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Shumie and you curse Shumie Time. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Shumie Time, while annoying, probably saves lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives.

You don't want the truth because, deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want Shumie defending those DUIS. You NEED Shumie defending those DUIS.

We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline.

I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom and leisure time that Shumie Time provides, and then questions the manner in which Shumie provides it. I would rather you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up a DUI case and file a motion and defend it. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

Shumie, I am a lawyer and an officer in the United States Navy and you are under arrest you son of a bitch.

OLD RULES STAY!

shumie time referee said...

10:21 re: ST and girls-

A man can and should immediately stop what he is doing when even the remotest possibility of sex or even seeing a woman partially naked arises (so to speak).

This is a rule much older that ST- it is the rule of man. And thus no ST ruling is needed by the ST referee.

In our legal field, there are thousands of instances of lawyers arriving late for everything from supreme court arguments to closing arguments when sex seemed possible a few moments before. Lawyers dash out of work at 11:30 for "lunch" or bolt at 4:15 for "a client meeting in Broward" when the possibility of a roll in the hay presents itself.

ST bows before the rule of man.

Who is on the Shumie Time committee-- where can I send suggestions and possibly adding a new rule?
