Water cooler talk

Forget about 756, everyone is talking about yesterday's 3rd DCA's opinion re Adorno Yoss.

From the concurrence by former AUSA (we had to have a SDFLA connection somewhere!) Angel Cortinas:

Plainly and simply, this was a scheme to defraud. It was a case of unchecked avarice coupled with a total absence of shame on the part of the original lawyers. The attorneys manipulated the legal system for their own pecuniary gain and acted against their clients’ interests by attempting to deprive them of monies to which they might otherwise be entitled. More unethical and reprehensible behavior by attorneys against their own clients is difficult to imagine.


Here's the opinion.

Here's the coverage in the DBR, the Herald, and the WSJ blog.

Language like that from an appellate court will get Adorno an office right down the hall from what's his name at the USAO
