Sometimes in cyberspace things take on a life of their own. In this case a surf bot came across some bad info that Madam Speaker was coming to another town hall meeting this month in Bay St Louis and broadcast it out into cyberspace. But that doesn’t make it so.
Not too many small towns like the Bay attract Madam Speaker 3 years running which we did. This year we’re going to let Speaker Pelosi enjoy her summer vacation in peace. 😉
Balducci, who was questioned as part of the unrelated Eaton v. Frisby lawsuit, is expected to testify against DeLaughter, who goes on trial Aug. 17 in U.S. District Court in Oxford on corruption charges. DeLaughter has insisted he is innocent, following the law in his rulings.
Contacted for comment about the deposition, DeLaughter’s attorney, Thomas Durkin of Chicago, remarked, “I find it very curious how a sealed document ended up in the hands of the press, and it’s more proof to me that money is the root of all evil. People will do a lot of things and say a lot of things to protect their money. Someone is obviously attempting to poison the jury venire.”
Even more curious than a sealed document ending up in the hands of the press is the difference between thebabbling Balducciin the recorded conversations of Scruggs I and the standard-English speaking witness he became as a witness.
A reader emailed us Troy Johnson’s heartfelt farewell to Judge Stanwood Duval that ran in the Houma Courier website that a Slabbed reader was kind enough to email in for clarification.
Judge Duval took senior status last December so while he is semi retired he remains on the bench albeit at a reduced workload.
My own opinion is that if I were a policyholder going to court in NOLA he’d be one of the judges I’d want on my case, not because he favors policyholders but because he believes the law applies equally to all the parties in his courtroom.
While Troy was a bit early in wishing the judge well his synopysis of Judge Duval’s career still makes his letter worth the read.
Once again, Marshall “Rocky” Eleuterius appears to be a super salesman and named defendant in Katrina litigation – first in O’Keefe and now in Anthony v State Farm.
According to the Complaint, the State Farm policy covered the Anthonys property located in close proximity to the Bay of St. Louis on the Gulf of Mexico.
State Farm and its agent Eleuterius expressly represented to the Plaintiffs that they would have full and comprehensive coverage for any and all hurricane damage to the insured residence, including any and all damage proximately, efficiently and typically caused by hurricane wind and “storm surge” proximately caused by hurricanes.
You’d think after the first time AIG paid fat executive bonuses while borrowing billions from the Treasury because of their habit of “tatooing” toxic paper they would have learned. Nope, seems the gang thinks they deserve extra for their fine work cratering the financial system in 2008. So while the nations unemployment rate skyrockets to 10% thanks to Wall Street greed millions in taxpayer dollars will be paid to the people who brought you this disaster.
Unlike the earlier pro se who appeared to think legal representation was not needed for a judge to do his job, the owners of the Stink Shak feel they can not afford counsel according to their Response to State Farm’s motion for partial summary judgment on plaintiff’s claim for punitive damages.
We were hopeful mediation would resolve the issue…We made an attempt to lower our offer from $55,000 to $40,000 …the Mediator suggested we get an attorney due to the complexity of the Court’s procedures. It is not possible to attain an attorney for the amount of our loss.
That may very well be true as State Farm spares no cost in litigating Katrina claims and an attorney would be reluctant to charge these plaintiffs, a married couple, the cost.
According to their complaint, she is disabled and he is retired and in poor health.
Our combined monthly SS income is $1600. Out of apparent necessity, we opened the store to meet our growing obligation of taxes, insurance premiums, medication, etc. On August 25, 2005 Hurricane Katrina destroyed the store. We were fully insured with State Farm Insurance. I met with the adjuster approximately two months later. It was obvious a tornado had hit the building.
