Lockdown or no lockdown, the hard-laboring clerks at The Glasshouse on Second Street are pumping out those T. C. Memos. and designated hitters today.

So I’ve plenty on my plate, a veritable embarras de richesses. I already beat the throw by blogging Kent Trembly, Docket No. 25068-17L, filed today, before the hard-laboring clerks could get it on the designated hitter list. See my blogpost “Time Sensitivity,” 4/13/20.

Zaid Hakkah and Layla Naji, 2020 T. C. Memo. 46, filed 4/13/20, is just another unsubstantiated Section 469 real estate pro try. But for one of Judge Tamara Ashford’s classic observations, I’d give it a pass.

But this is too good to pass up.

“At trial petitioners discussed how Mr. Hakkak had health problems during the years at issue, and Mr. Hakkak testified that he worked as an attorney only from “12 to three” about “two times a week”. However, despite these claims Mr. Hakkak still managed to have income of $449,437 in [Year One] and $81,777 in [Year Two] from the practice of law… and petitioners did not produce any calendars or timesheets related to Mr. Hakkak’s legal work because he apparently had no such records.” 2020 T. C. Memo. 46, at pp. 18-19.

I wish I could do what he done.
