"No bias, no bull" – Of course not, she's Jim Brown's daughter!

Regular readers know that SLABBED is a big fan of former Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Brown and his blog – and now his daughter, the spirited Campbell Brown featured in today’s Washington Post.

A reader emailed me observing that since Jamie Perdigao is presently in jail, the week postponement is somewhat odd. IMHO this development could signal behind the scenes activity – not that it is a given Judge Fallon will let Mr Perdigao out but the thinking is there has to be an incentive for him to sit in jail another week as opposed to knowing his pre trial fate. Stay tuned.

Now the Times Picayune staff report:

A former Adams and Reese law partner jailed since his arrest last week on new charges of hacking into his ex-employer’s computer system will have to wait another week to find out if he’ll be allowed to go free on bond as he awaits trial on earlier charges that he stole $30 million from the firm.
