Covered at Reason 24/7: Judge Resigns Amid Charges of Stealing Neighbor’s Savings

A California judge charged with 32 felony counts accusing him of draining the life savings of a neighbor has resigned and agreed to never pursue a seat as a judge ever again.

The Oakland Tribune reports on the case of Judge Paul Seeman:

Seeman is accused of stealing from his now-deceased Berkeley neighbor Anne Nutting by illegally gaining control of her finances and property after her husband died in 2009. While in control of her finances, Seeman is accused of slowly funneling her life savings and valuable possessions into his control. Nutting died in April 2010.

Investigators have said that Nutting's life savings and valuables were worth at least $3 million, court records state.

Seeman was charged on June 14, 2012 with numerous felony crimes including theft from an elder or dependent adult and numerous felony perjury charges for lying on state financial disclosure reports.

After those charges in June, Seeman refused to step down from the bench. He continued to draw a paycheck, though had not appeared in court since the arrest, according to the Tribune.

    Seeman and Nutting? Really Scott, are you sure this isn't from a gag site?

  • ||

    I'd tell you to get your mind out of the gutter, jesse, except...the same thought occurred to me.

  • sloopyinca||

  • sloopyinca||

    You're a fucking wierdo.

  • ||

    Way to ruin it by not doing "S", Ken. I'd say you're the worst, but we know that it's nicole.

    So I give you freaks.

  • Irish||

    You know who's the worst? People who fuck up links. I assume I'm about to see something great, then I click and click and click and nothing great happens.

  • ||

    WTF?!? God damn it. Here. And it's not that awesome, just funny.

  • ||

    OK, something is fucked here. I definitely wrote my HTML correctly that time.

    One more time.

  • ||

    Bring back Miner Joe!

  • Ted S.||

    If you're going to use the word "freaks", it damn well ought to be a reference to Tod Browning.

  • ||

    How do you serial SF the same link?

  • ||

    Ima guess that you use Chrome and don't realize that for some reason it's not pasting over the http part of the link. At least that's how I do it.

  • ||

    Hey, I'm gunning for nicole's tiara, that's how.

  • ||

    SF'd, you're gonna have to try harder though if you want to beat out Nicole.

  • Hugh Akston||

    By freaks, I assume you mean a Sugarfree's link. Congratulations Epi, you're one of us.

  • sloopyinca||

    So I give you freaks.

    No you don't you fucking retard.

  • Scott S.||

    An Onion headline showed up in the Google News feed earlier today, so now I don't trust anything.

  • ||

    Yeah, you don't want to be China

    Or for that matter my parents. No seriously someone sent this to them as a legit email and they freaked out about it, and continued freaking out after I explained what The Onion is.

  • Irish||

  • ||

    The Onion really does troll with the best.

    "'Hermione is my favorite, because she's smart and has a kitty,' said 6-year-old Jessica Lehman of Easley, SC. 'Jesus died because He was weak and stupid.'"

    Awesome! And they did their research, coming up with Easley, SC.

  • ||

    Lol. I love that article.

  • ||

    Ha! I don't think there's a synonym for hypocrisy strong enough for you telling someone to take their mind out of the gutter Epi.

    I'm glad it's not just me though. Reason: Come for the politics, stay for the confirmation that you're not the worst person around.

  • ||

    Well, yeah, since we all know that nicole is, in fact, the worst. Which leaves us free to do anything we want!

  • ||

    Totally! She just admitted it (again) today.

  • ||

    It's good that she's come to terms with it and can face it. I think she'll feel a lot better now that she's no longer in denial.

  • ||

    It's...it's all thanks to you guys...I couldn't have done it without you.

    Fuck, you bastards probably charge for that, don't you?

  • ||

    The itemized bill is already in the mail. NET 30, remember. But seeing as it's you...NET 10.

  • ||

    Itemized? What the hell is on this bill?

  • Hugh Akston||

    Items.

  • ||

    I'm not paying for whatever Epi and jesse's lube costs are, is all I'm saying.

  • ||

    That's a shame, the good stuff is pricey.

  • sloopyinca||

    I have a small tube of that in my night stand. But a 32 oz bottle? What the fuck man?

  • Irish||

    Dude, that's like a week for Jesse. He can be a bit of a slut.

  • ||

    Haha I didn't even realize it was ginormous. I guess if they need it...

  • SIV||

    NSFWThis place sells lube in gallon containers.NSFW

  • SIV||

    How NSFW?

    TWO BUCKS a bottle. You can make up to 18 bottles from one container of FIST Powder. It's a friggin' lube REVOLUTION...cuz it's the ONLY powder lube we've ever tested that is NOT stringy.

    FIST Powder was 2 years in the making and the main ingredient has NEVER been used before in the lube market. Yeah, we know, a lotta you butt pirates are big fans of J-lube powder. But J-lube is for fisting COWS...not warranted safe for humans...and Fist Powder is a certified medical device. The "CE" number on the bottle means FIST is certified safe for your skin and fully compatible with latex condoms and gloves.

  • SweatingGin||

    Wow, just wow.

    ...and Fist Powder is a certified medical device.

    Does that mean the Obamacare tax hits it?

  • ||

    That site is FILTHY. Bookmarked.

    Though amazon has you beat.

  • SweatingGin||

    pft. Not prime eligible.

    Between that and the plastic sheeting, I'm afraid to see what the recommendations will be tomorrow.

  • ||

    I have to be careful because our shared amazon account for work is set up in chrome and my personal in firefox when I'm at the office. I occasionally click through to things from Reason. Next thing I know there's awkwardness at work when my Accounts Payable manager goes to buy something on Amazon. I've had to do some serious redacting of the recently viewed list.

  • Archduke Pantsfan||

  • ||

    This is why I usually stop in at the local sex shop to buy personal lubricant. Amazon suggestions get weird fast.

  • sloopyinca||

    There's a decent sex shop in Riverside a block from the Mission Inn.

    Um, a friend told me that.

  • ||

    Anyone notice that Reason redirects posted amazon links to make them the referrer? I wonder what their account looks like at this point.

    We have a classy shop in Torrance. It's clean, well lit, and doesn't have an arcade. The staff is helpful and courteous. Wildcat in Lennox and The Tender Box in Hermosa are exactly the opposite.

  • Ted S.||

    The customer's what also bought?

  • ||

    I've only ever bothered to buy the 4oz and the TSA sized one. I knew a couple that had the 16oz pump bottle. It's not like the stuff expires and it's cheaper to buy in bulk.

  • ||

    Damn, and I thought this was bad.

    So I'm even more not paying just so y'all can pretend to be extra manly about it.

  • Irish||

    Sliquid is a disgusting name.

  • ||

    That's really bad, it's nearly $9/oz.

    Gun Oil is like $2/oz if you buy in bulk.

    I agree with Irish on Sliquid being an awful name (and other things he's said on this thread)

  • ||

    There is a line item for lubricant, yes, nicole. It was all part of the process. And we absolutely needed the item that says "Snoqualmie Casino". Absolutely.

  • ||

    And what "process" is that, exactly? And yes I do want to know. I'm footing the fucking bill now.

  • ||

    Trade secrets, nicole. Sorry.

  • ||

    You're clearly not familiar with how contracting works Nicole.

    Skip to 2:09

  • SweatingGin||

    Is Gun Oil a brand?

    I'm just going to assume you don't want to use CLP.

    Stealing their neighbor's savings? Isn't that basically the Cypress bank bailout plan?

    Matthew Yglesias literally argues that the government can redistribute any property it wants because 'The concept of "redistribution" falsely implies that the existence of property is prior to the existence of the state.'

    Amazing. Amazing, amazing, amazing.

  • Virginian||

    I bet he's got some nice stuff. Anyone want to go break into his house and redistribute his stuff for more justice?

  • sloopyinca||

    Somebody ought to redistribute his brains all over a will with the help of a .45.

  • Irish||

    Question: If property rights only exist due to the state, then how do wolves and monkeys understand territoriality? Shouldn't they just share everything if they don't have an understanding of property?

  • sloopyinca||

    Are you suggesting I walk around and piss on all the trees on my farm? Because I'm way ahead of you.

  • sloopyinca||

    Somebody brought up Butler last night and said he wondered how they would do in the Big East next year. I remarked that it was odd for a team to actually downgrade their conference affiliation by choice. In my opinion, the A10 is the 3rd or 4th best conference out there.

    Big Ten
    Big East
    A10
    Big 12
    ACC
    Pac 12

    In that order (this year)

    Washington Post: Menendez ratfucker worked for the Daily Caller.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/.....story.html

    Sorry John, you are wrong yet again.

  • sloopyinca||

    There's an awful lot of he said/she said in there. How can you be so certain of who's telling the truth?*

    *And that's a serious question, so try to give a serious answer.

  • Irish||

    Liberals tell truth.

    Conservatives lie.

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    The Daily Caller admitted they printed a lie but denied paying for it.

    The Daily Caller issued a statement Friday saying that the information allegedly provided by the Dominican lawyer, Melanio Figueroa, was false.

  • sloopyinca||

    That's all fine and good. It reminds me of a news agency rushing to get a story out and printing something that had not yet been vetted. It happens all the time.

    But you are directly accusing the DC of having the guy on their payroll. They are denying that and the only guy that says "Carlos" worked for them is a dude that's in hot water. And he also said the guy didn't have any ID or a way to show he worked for the DC.

    Sorry, but your explanation isn't good enough for me.

  • Irish||

    Which of course has nothing to do with your statement that the guy worked for the Caller, something they deny. Way to conflate two points.

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    But Figueroa told police it was only “Carlos,” who identified himself as working for the Daily Caller, who came to the Dominican Republic and paid him to arrange the recorded interviews, according to an interview with Polanco.

    The main witness said this. The DC denies it.

  • Irish||

    The main witness also said Menendez had sex with underage prostitutes. So the guy who was untrustworthy 2 weeks ago and has now proven himself to be untrustworthy is beyond reproach the moment he accuses a conservative of something. Clearly the person who is now claiming that he can be paid to say anything is imminently trustworthy.

    Well played, Buttboy.

  • Irish||

    Also, clearly my original post says that the DC is the one denying it. Can you even read beyond words like 'Bushpig?'

  • sloopyinca||

    By "main witness," don't you mean the focus of the investigation?

    Also, FTA: Earlier this month, Figueroa told the New York Times that he did not make up a plot to “smear” Menendez and his wealthy friend and donor, Salomon Melgen, and that one of the alleged prostitutes had been pressured to say she fabricated her account of sex with the senator.

    This dude has changed his story how many times now? And why did you choose this particular story as the truthful one because it sure isn't because there's any corroborating evidence.

  • SIV||

    I usually turn on all the lights for Earth Hour but I am sympathetic to the idea of reducing light pollution. Why the fuck should I pay for a city county or state to put huge fucking lights on 50' poles every 1/32nd mile along the interstate highway?

  • SweatingGin||

    I'm staying at a hotel, so I slept witg all the lights on and the hot water running. Plus, I'm starting up a new chemical plant so I did my beat to burn the most natural gas possible and run the fans at maximum against closed dampers.

    If our steam production was working I would have vented it to atmospbere too.

    OK, the chemical plant stuff was a joke--I actually am starting one up but I respect my employer enough not to waste its money unnecessarily.

    OT: Some good news, on a familiar story:

    CBS-11 has learned two state troopers involved in a controversial roadside cavity search of two North Texas women have been indicted on criminal charges by a Dallas County Grand Jury.

    CBS-11 has learned that one of the troopers, Kelley Helleson, who left the courthouse after testifying Friday, is charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of official oppression.

    She was seen on dashcam video searching the body cavities — front and back — of the two women along an exit ramp of the Bush Turnpike in Irving last summer.

    The Texas Department of Public Safety fired Helleson.

    CBS-11 has learned the other trooper in the case, David Farrell, is charged with theft after one of the women said her prescription bottle of the painkiller hydrocodone was missing after the search.

    NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. — Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati has been charged after police said she punched her ex-boyfriend on Valentine’s Day while he was working out at a gym.

    North Palm Beach police say Ivan Brannan was working out when the 36-year-old Capriati approached him and yelled at him. Brannan told police that he tried to get away by walking to the men’s locker room, but Capriati blocked his path and punched him in the chest.

    I hate BB rules.

    Sherwood was dunking (+2) and got flagrantly fouled yet after the shitty T G-town got the ball with two foul shots each.

  • sloopyinca||

    A hard foul while going for the ball =/= a flagrant foul. The T was a bit dicey, though.

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    There is too much incentive to foul in BB.

  • sloopyinca||

    This borders on some of the stupidity you post about Soros. Fouls are a part of the game, dumbass.

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    Fouls let the team with the most goons intimidate the skill players.

    Really, just don't spout off on game or market theory when you know so little.

  • sloopyinca||

    You do know there are limits to how many fouls each player can commit, right? And players who get fouled often have an opportunity to shoot unmolested shots for points. They're called "free throws" and if more teams practiced them regularly, less teams would foul.

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    There should be penalty boxes like in hockey.

    Foul - sit down for three minutes.

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    G-town may goon their way to a win now.

  • sloopyinca||

    Did you fall on your head when you were a kid? Basketball isn't hockey, numbnuts.

  • RBS||

    Jesus christ, I agree with PB, sort of. Refs blow the whistle way too much. Like at the end of the NC State game earlier, it was a clean enough block but the ref didn't swallow the whistle and he should have.

  • sloopyinca||

    Well that's just a ref blowing a call. He was talking about the rules of the game.

  • RBS||

    I get that, no blood no foul. pussies.

  • sloopyinca||

    Just watch Big Ten games. That's physical.

  • mr simple||

    Are you saying they shouldn't have fouls? They should just let players molest each other without consequence? You do realize a foul is a punishment, right?

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    I'm saying the opposite.

    Fouls should hurt the thugs.

  • sloopyinca||

    Oh, no. A Georgetown player just committed his fifth foul and is out for the rest of the game. Oh and the guy he fouled is shooting two uncontested shots at the basket.

    But they don't punish people for fouls, right?

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    One thug subs for another - no penalty.

  • AuH20||

    PB is DB Cooper!

  • sloopyinca||

    Yeah, basketball teams are just like the Borg. All parts are interchangeable and none are more valuable than others.

    Again, you're a fucking dope.

  • Palin's Buttplug||

    Send your goons out to foul, idiot-fuck, not your skill players.

  • sloopyinca||

    Oh, you're right. When the other team gets the ball, have your goons jump over the boards and come on the court to foul. Then when you get the ball back, have your skill players make a line change as you're coming up the court.

    How could I have missed that incredible strategy?

  • Mike M.||

    I actually wouldn't object to a rule change putting in something like a Triiple Bonus, where after say 15 or 20 team fouls in a half, the other team gets one free throw and the ball out of bounds, or something along those lines. The last two minutes of a game can be excruciating to watch.

    He fights for truthiness, social justice, and the American Democratic Party way!

  • sloopyinca||

    Superman is a progtard. Note that he said he was gonna "stop" Lex Luthor before Luthor told him of his plan? He was pissed just because he had bought up all that land.

    Also, he violates the 4A pretty regularly, especially when he spins into someone's underground domicile without a warrant.

    Fuck Superman.

  • sloopyinca||

    Not to mention, Krypton was a socialist utopia. They told Jar El that he couldn't even leave the planet when he knew it was gonna be destroyed because they didn't want to deal with "panic". And that pussy just took it. He died even though he fucking knew his planet was gonna go up in flames...just for the greater good.

  • ||

    Two things: one, Jor-El was going to leave the planet with his family but only had enough time and resources to make a rocket for babay Jor-El.

    Two, Luthor gave Superman probable cause to enter his subterranean by broadcasting to him his plan to release nerve gas in Metropolis, which was his intention anyway since he wanted to kill Supes with the kryptonite.

  • sloopyinca||

    At the beginning of the movie, Jor El told the council of his intention to leave and they refused.

    And I will concede you the point on entering Luthor's lair. I had forgotten the part where he had made the threat.

  • ||

    At the beginning of the movie, Jor El told the council of his intention to leave and they refused.

    Hmm, I guess. I remember being distracted by the fact that the Kryptonian Council looked like Phil Collins from the "In the Air Tonight" music video.

  • Mike M.||

    Especially when you consider that the Kryptonians can fly through the vacuum of space at around the speed of light without oxygen. What a bunch of fools, staying on their doomed planet like that.

    They do. Which doesn't explain why he was able to travel back to where Krypton was prior to Superman Returns. Once he got into the solar system where Krypton used to be, he would have lost his powers and died in space, which would have been fine by me.

  • ||

    Mike, Superman can only do that because he was exposed to Earth's yellow sun. Jor-El could not because Krypton had a red sun.

  • RBS||

    This is why Superman sucks.

  • DK||

    I think Mike might be referring to how Kryptonians can imprison people in a piece of glass. Why not imprison the entire population? And, send an explosive device ahead of them to a habitable planet that would detonate once the population arrived.

    Sloopy is right - Superman was especially a dick early on - Superman was a Dick.

    And, now we know the real reason Sloopy didn't respond to Epi's R above with an S - he hates Superman.

    Superman starts destroying all the houses, under the logic that the government will then have to build new ones and that this will somehow end all crime. At no point does Superman consult the people who actually live there, or attempt to hide the fact that he's having way too much fun wrecking their homes.

    So he's a Keynesian?

    US government decides to regulate bitcoins.

    Bitcoin and Other Virtual Currencies Finally Get Some Regulation
    Mario Aguilar

    Companies that distribute and exchange Bitcoin will now be subject to the same rules as Western Union. The hope is to crackdown on Bitcoin-related crime.

    Regulating virtual currencies is tricky because it's hard to do it without admitting that they're legitimate in some way. But given the surge in Bitcoin's popularity—and its utility as the currency of choice for drug dealers, gun runners, and other baddies—the US government had to do something.

  • Archduke Pantsfan||

  • ||

  • sloopyinca||

    How many of those units are really used?

    Ex: Area: square inch, square foot, square yard, acre, square mile, township, square fathom, square rod, square furlong, square league, square mil, square pole, square perch, square hand, square link, square chain

    Only four of those are used. And in the dumbass metric system, one can never decide if they should use square millimeters, centimeters or meters when dealing with a small area.

    also, ask a carpenter or a pastry chef if they would rather use the metric system or the American system. Those guys do nothing but use measurements all day, and I guarantee you they all use the American system.

  • Archduke Pantsfan||

    In Canada we use millilitres for drink sizes, while in Europe they use centilitres.
    Who cares?

  • sloopyinca||

    I care, dammit. And how the hell are serving sizes of liquids determined? 1/4L or 1/8L? Isn't 1 cup or 1 pint just easier?

  • Archduke Pantsfan||

    1/4L? 500ml or 50cl

  • Archduke Pantsfan||

    ^^1/2L

  • sloopyinca||

    And you think "I used x liters of gas to go y kilometres. Therefore if I multiply the number of liters by 100 and then divide that by the number of kilometers I went, I will use z liters of gas to go 100 km" is easier to calculate or use than "I drove x miles and used y gallons of gas, therefore I got x/y MPG"

    If the match had been on Monday, Columbus would have been similar. We're supposed to get that same storm in the lower Great Lakes by Monday.

    Denver is just as likely to have a bunch of Ticos as Columbus. We had a qualifier against Costa Rica for the 2002 cycle. Surprising number of Ticos (probably ex-pats from all over the East) showed up, but they did not dominate the crowd in any way.

    I'm thoroughly enjoying Lost Girl, they just paced the core romantic relationship badly. Like, Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman badly.

    Late to the party but Corner Gas is one of the best television comedies ever filmed.

    Although, if you want talk good television, it's Australia/Kiwiland for the win: Housos, Swift & Shift, 7 Periods With Mr. Gormsby, The Librarians, Diplomatic Immunity. Also, special mention for The Gruen Transfer.

    Georgetown losing put quite the dent in several brackets of the Reason H&R Superdrone. Here are the top 10 and ties:

    1 Kaptious Bracket 24 - - - - Kansas St. 24 76
    1 Damn That Bitch is Fine-Stein 24 - - - - Indiana 24 108
    1 Flounder 24 - - - - Indiana 24 99
    1 Knutsack Knows KNCAA 24 - - - - Miami (FL) 24 108
    5 Ermahgerd Ternahmernt 23 - - - - Louisville 23 104
    5 LBCheeseburgers 23 - - - - Ohio St. 23 98
    5 Counterfly's Bracket of DOOOOM 23 - - - - Duke 23 103
    5 Abraham10 23 - - - - Indiana 23 102
    5 F1 is more fun 23 - - - - Louisville 23 98
    5 If I Win Monocles for Everyone 23 - - - - Miami (FL) 23 102
    5 C. Anacreon's House of Pain 23 - - - - Michigan St. 23 99

    The last two numbers are their # of correct picks so far and their highest possible total. So as you can see, there are some names on here that will be dropping quickly because their winner (Kristen, I'm looking at you) got beat already.

    I'll do a more detailed analysis in the next little while, but I've got eggs in the incubator that are hatching still, so I've got little time.

    This Gonzaga team is getting every fucking call so far. I guess the refs don't want the entire West Region blown up. 11 fouls to 5 in the first half including an awful charge call on WSU's best player for his second foul.

    Shockers need to be careful in the first few minutes of the second half...which starts out with a bad foul call again for Early's third foul.

    C'mon Shockers!

  • sloopyinca||

    And another horrible foul call. Olynyk pushes for position then gets his shit blocked clean...and Hall is also on the bench with 3 fouls.

  • sloopyinca||

    They've called 5 fucking fouls on Wichita State in 3 minutes of the second half. 1 on Gonzaga.

    They're trying to decide this game.

  • sloopyinca||

    Oh. My. Fucking. God. Now they call the worst charge call I've seen in years against the Shockers.

    Fix. FIIIIIIIIIIIXXXXXXXX!!!!!!!!!

    Wow, Marquette. Nice comeback.

    It's raining 3s allover the court in SLC.

    I knew it was probably a bad idea to put Gonzaga in my Final Four when I did it but I let my emktikns cloud my judgement. Who knows, they could still make it and make it look like I know what I'm doing.

  • sloopyinca||

    WSU jut can't miss. This shit is all but done. Wow!

  • mr simple||

    There goes my second final four team.

  • mr simple||

    So is it the parity or did the committee jusf do a shitty job of seeding?

  • sloopyinca||

    Yes.
