Copy of Administrative Order by U.S. District Judge Moreno to review conduct of Nevin Shapiro's lawyer

 Click on the link below for the exact document that U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno filed that has initiated a review of the conduct of Maria Elena Perez, the lawyer of former UM booster Nevin Shapiro. 

   "Recently, the Court has learned that Ms. Perez has engaged in conduct that warrants additional review by the Committee,'' it says in the order. "The specific issue is whether Ms. Perez acted unethically in accepting monies from the National Collegiate Athletic Association for her work on three depositions in the bankruptcy case of'' Shapiro.

   A group of U.S. District judges will recommend by May 8 what to do, if anything, in this matter.

Isn't the last thing the U needs right now is an organization that actually has subpoena power sniffing around? As bunglingly nefarious as the NCAA might be, they don't have subpoena power and can't compel anyone to talk to them, which was the real reason (IMO) the U was going to get time served.

Getting the real authorities involved, with all their constitutionally delegated powers may (or may not) hurt the NCAA, but could be more costly to the U.

Manny and Susan!!!!!!

Is there anything you can do about this comments section? You can look at the IP addresses but I bet there aren't more than 5 people writing a bunch of the trolling nonsense back and forth.

Canes fans would greatly appreciate moderation so that real people could use this forum to talk about Hurricanes athletics. Good or bad, let the people have their say.

But make them use one name, a TypePad or Twitter (not FB) login. If they want to set up a bunch of dummy accounts and log in and out fine, but I promise the quality of your blog would go up.

Wow you clearly don't understand much huh? An actual authority is just investigating the behavior of the lawyer, not of the university. This means they will be involved in also investigating the NCAA, who needs to be investigated because they are power mongers. There's no place for them and it might be now that something is done to regulate the institution and it's blasphemous behavior. That's what this is about, this will in no way jeopardize Miami

Pay Pee Mason no mind Santiago. Just another troll doing some wishful thinking.

All the negative things happening with the NCAA only gives UM a better chance for less stringent sanctions. These ongoing "hits" to the NCAA give them more reasons not to exert their power. UM may have just rolled over completely prior to the NCAA's troubles. Now, they will question what the NCAA does to them in the way of sanctions and the NCAA will be more on the defensive than usual.

Go Canes beat Clemson!!!!!!

Let's go Canes!!!!

I bet nobody can figure out how many IDs I use both here and the PBP

ACC champions. Who would have thought that the bb team would have won it before football? With Duke, NC, tobacco road?

ACC champions baby

I have been named the official head of recruiting for the Canes
A very wise move by Al
Nobody can watch hilite tapes like I can
Im still a great athlete so the kids can relate to me
Im at a level nobody can reach
4.05 forty
600 on the bench
Im also able to lift UMike off the ground

Canes are ACC Champion!

I would like to see the NCAA and the lawyer plus all the others who were fired behind the scandal put under oath. Ask them how they obtain the information and the lawyer who was working both sides need to be disbar for her unethical behavior. What about this so call committee that couldn't even produce a letter that was sent out a long time ago. Really Free the canes. Set us free. Free at last

The more pressure put on Perez and she will roll over on the NCAA, she is already pissed at them and the more pressure the better. This inquiry could expose the NCAA even more. Perez will act the woman scorned, didn't get paid what she thought her work was worth and stated that if she had it to do over she wouldn't recommend her scuzball client not to talk with such an incompetent organization. This will get ugly but only help the U, jmo!

Is this place a joke or whay?

Mac please return to my CS
Youre the best blogger out here
Stop by and say hi to everyone

To the people of Canspace wondering where the "blog pig" here went, he invented a new personality that he's been posting here with 24/7 since he "disappeared".

Calls himself Jim Gallo.

Congratulations to the ACC’s 2013 Regular Season Basketball Champions:


On another note...

The Canes baseball program under the leadership of Jim Morris is a shadow of its former self. After last night's debacle at the 'Light' being beaten-up by Duke, tonight Morris led his troops to a 9 to 2 loss to the Dukies. It could have been worse as the Canes scored 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th to avoid a shutout...so we've got that going for us!

Morris has done to the Miami baseball program what Coker and Shannon did to the football program.

Watching this team play makes me hope the NCAA gives the baseball program the death penalty, although some would say Morris has already accomplished that.

I agree! Fire Morris!


Jim Morris hasbeen too cushyin his job. Too compacent. It shows with lazy, ultra conservative coaching and recruiting

This is no longer the UMiami baseball team that most teams feared to play against. That you could count on year inyear out to be in the CWS let alone win it.

Why has Morris gotten a pass for this long? Don't everyone know that UM baseball is as traditional as football? That they have won 4 historic national championships? This sort of attitude ignores all of the Cuban and dominaican americans, panamanian-americans who are also cane fans

Morris has to be fired.

He gots to go. Before the season gets out of hand

It is nearly out of hand now. 0-2 in the ACC, losing a series to Duke. Please.

Larranaga lost to ST Leos and FGCU early on and turned it around. Morris is doing the opposite. He is goingbackward. Started unranked became ranked and now will fall back into obscurity.

I have been calling for him to be fired for the last 3 seasons. I know now I have been right

Congratulations to the ACC Basketball Regular Season Champs Miami Hurricanes! Way to fight through adversity and get the win last night!

I live out of state so I'm unable to attend any baseball games in person, but I agree we are now what we used to be. When I think of how imaginative and innovative Ron Frasier used to be compare to how we are now, it does appear a change and new blood is needed. Mediocrity in baseball is something the U is not used to and should not tolerate.

It is never acceptable to roll over when you should be standing up for "justice"! To bury your head in hopes the NCAA will go light is not sound advise and just plain silly! The NCAA by its own and any other ethical standards have itself committed to many unethical actions, violation of rights and process, and lack of institutional oversight. Hate the Canes or not it is only right by the accepted legal and procedural processes of this country that the NCAA accepts the self punishment and discontinue its accusations against the school.

Loaded....Go Coach G..... Congrats Coach L.

In the past Miami seemed to cower and bury their heads, but since Emmert double-crossed them and didn't accept the self-imposed penalties as he led them to beieve he would Donna Shalala has become an assasin on a mission.

The Miami Herald's Fred Grimm wrote an outstanding article concerning Shapiro and his best friends, the NCAA, found in today's Miami Herald: http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/03/09/3277011/fred-grimm-the-ncaa-had-big-plans.html

this is old news.....UM isn't affected at all....sanctions go forward...no change


You festering boil-liar, this is NOT "old news" as the letter to the NCAA was discovered only several days ago and made public by the Associated Press.

Once again you have lied and failing attempted to mislead people.

please, it's the same old story, I've explained the legalities to you morons 100 times. UM is going to get hammered, the death penalty is in play and at the very least were looking at a 10 year bowl ban and 50 scholarships.

Jimmy Gallo:

Even with a 10 year bowl ban and a reduction of 50 scholarships the Canes will still maul and own Coward and Felon University...also known as the Gators.

The one area the Gators had a very slight lead over the Canes was Basketball and now we own them in hoops...too funny!

Dear P Mason : YOU are a laughable joke.No one would possibly be influenced by your very,very childish and unimaginative wish for a bunch of judges to subpoanea UM personnel.THEY...as you re well aware.......that we and the world knows.....this is only in regards to Shapiro s attorney MR Einstein.Ease up on your poor excuse of artificial and unconvincing drama.NO Cane fans are buying it nor are they as obviously dumb or naive as yourself.

Gallo your explqnation of the legalities was ignored b 99 pct of us. Nobody cares what your stupid a55 has to say

BS....that 2010 complaint was posted by a blogger last month on canetimes....old news that has nothing to do with UM....

shalala was all talk...here we are 2 months into this...where is her civil lawsuit?

You're a sick man Jim Gallo, I hope for your sake you're just a loser troll.

This comment section is a joke and the FB comment section for the main articles is just as bad. What does it mean. It means the Herald has become a joke.


Morris may have postponed his firingby Umnot getting swept by Duke.

If this baseball squad doesnt get their act straight, Morris will be on his way out. UM baseball needs a fresh mind, someone enthusiastic about UM ball. Morris is stale, complacent unimaginative, boring, and his players show it.

What a travesty

Baseball Coach Morris continues where he left off last year.Has his team beat the average to poor teams.The top 2 challenges though in this brief season thus far has been up against Florida,(Miami failed winning 1 of 3 only) and beginning ACC play this past weekend against their 2nd KEY challenge thus far...they failed again losing another series by winning only 1 of 3 against Duke???????Are you serious??????Duke???Morris did a horriffic job last year and he can be 35-13 but when the 13 losses are to ACC teams and good teams......another failed season and no advancing to the NCAA Playoffs once again seems enevitable.Morris does NEED to go.UN baseball deserves better than him.

I think they'll let Morris resign rather than fire him. He was great for Miami for about a decade. He won two national titles. He doesn't deserve to be fired based on his history with the program, but clearly the game has passed him. Give him an administrative position and let him go out with dignity.

Sunny Dee: I 100% respectfully disagree.

Morris was good for Miami until 2008. that is 7 years. Since then, his teams have s--ked royally. s--ked. he comes out with excuse after excuse after excuse: Early exit to the pros etc. DOESNT HE KNOW THATTHE GATORS AND SEMINOLES HAVE HAD THE SAME ISSUES AND YET THEY HAVE COME CLOSE TO WINNING THE CWS THREE TIMES IN THE LAST 10 YRS BY THEMSELVES?

UM baseball is no where to be found.
It has not progressed
Recruiting has not progressed

Coker was only given 5 years. In 2006 he was canned despite playing for 2 NCS technically winning 2, and finishing inthe top 5 thenext year, winning 2 BCS bowls, beating the gators inthe Peach Bowl.

Shannon was only given 4 years

So why does Morris deserve more time? No way. This bb teamis the laughing stock of college bb.

Who cares about metal bat baseball with a bunch of guys who are going to be in the minor leagues for 5 years until they resurface again?

There it is!

The answer is NOBODY CARES.




Do we have defensive scheme that works yet is all i want to know. We're trying to run a defensive scheme that's basically hoping the other team makes an unforced error instead running a defense that creates and forces turn-overs.

The sad thing is, goldie and his boy believe in his heart that the defense they're trying to run here actually worked in the fiesta bowl in 1987 but what they fail to realize is, only one player on offense blew that game in vinny "no testacles" verde. Other than that, penn disgrace got dominated on both sides of the ball that whole game. As much as people try and get on j70, that man never threw 5 picks in one game, lol, get real. In fact, if j70 had the defenses all these qb's had to play with as well as the oc's that those qb's had, most of you would be singing a different tune right about now.

The man is in 2nd place all time at UM with 70 td's while playing under 3 different oc's.

Why dont you just copy your one and only novel
It would save you alot of time
Maybe you could get a job and just give up blogging
You are the biggest racist on this board
The OGV erratic med levels is the best blogger here
4.1 forty baby

The irony that the NCAA investigation has turned on itself...lol

Gallo - you truly are a tool. You spout your BS on this blog 24-7. Did you take a moment to even read the court document. It was filed March 5, 2013. How is that old news? You are so busy trolling and trying to conger up more negative crap your comments aren't even consistent with the stores. You are a pathetic, lonely little man.

Down in the Gables, history is being made by your University of Miami Hurricanes with first ACC championship!!!!
Yes, history is being made for futility. Big three sports in the last DECADE? One conference title. I believe that makes you One for THIRTY! Or, 1-29.

Losing, it's a []_[] thang.

Go flock youselves trolls.........After the U football team steamrolls thru next season, then what do U have to say? they were lucky? weak schedule even tho theres prob 2-3 top 10 teams on the schedule, possibly 4 with vaTech and UNC if they rebound this year

GO to the UFelon blog

But Hassan, I have a tough time believing, STOOPID as UMike is, that he is DimDom. Domasse sets the ignorance bar at an extremely hig level. Lets not forget that he is claing the UM has depth(s) at DT. And he has been strongly predicting dominance for a good five years now. Hassan, I understand and accept that you are the football god that we have all wanted and needed so badly. Forgive me Oh Grand Poohbah of the
Pigskin, but perhaps you "whiffed" on this one?

Gallo aka Idiot King

Keep listing all the players Golden rejected/ejected...

But tell me when ONE of them becomes a valuable player on any team they end up on.

Until then, they are all failed projects that Coach G smartly got rid o to clear space for all the stars he's bringing in.

Gallo you dumba55...

The bloated fake lawyer is now running all over the place crying that someone is making fun of her LOL. Clown makeup is claiming she knows who it is bagging on her LOL. Its not who you think it is cottage cheese. I will be more then happy to slap the taste of tuna out of your boyfriends mouth. BJ1906 is still to busy eating 5 large pizzas for breakfest to worry about. A fake lawyer and a fraud saying he lost weight LOL. Dont you frauds have your P O R N to brag about or those copy n paste recruiting artcles to hope and fool people with. BJ1906 is a fat moron who knows zero about recruitig. Hes into eating and lying about weight loss. The skank is applying her clown makeup before she goes outside as to not scare normal looking humans. Your dumb enough to think this is 86 LOL. Go drink some more booze you fake on lawyer ho bag LOL.
