Anyone else notice Chehardy Sherman de-Norma’d their website? Hmmm. (Updated)

This is the second time we linked a website that supported one of our Jefferson Parish political corruption posts only to have the owner break the link. This time it was the Chehardy Sherman law firm who evidently is no longer quite so proud of their previous association with Aaron Broussard’s daughter in law Norma. Luckily for us and (like the Billy Hill Trail Society) it lives on in the google cache. (H/T John Deaux)

The first time it happened was with our post on Trout Point Lodge and Aaron Broussard’s association with the Billy Hill Trails Society which can be found here.

Nowdy my mind is open to the possibility we’re doing some serious damage to the entrenched political establishment in Jefferson Parish. :mrgreen:

Stay tuned folks. We have posts coming on old-fashioned Jefferson Parish corruption that includes some dumpster diving and a Craig Codina update.

Update:

As predicted the google cache was cleared but our readers can view the web archive here.

  1. Just a thought or recommendation: you might want to start tif’ing or pdf’ing these images and embedding them.

    For instance I tracked back to the Billy Hills Trails links – is it still there?

    Going back to that post raised a question for me: what is up with the TP and Broussard? Who gets a correction like that? Here’s the original letter to the TP, from their site, which is still there:

    http://media.nola.com/politics/other/Trout%20Point%20Lodge_TimesPic.pdf

    The TP wrote a correcton that made it seem like everything reported about Nova Scotia was false. Well, it wasn’t.

    It’s something else what other reporters miss, you really have to piece it all together: as a member of Chehardy Sherman, when Norma received the curatorship funds, wouldn’t she have to share that money with her firm? She wasn’t the only one profiting, it would have gone to the partners, right? So wouldn’t guys like Lawrence Chehardy and Michael Ellis themselves get a cut of that at least if not more?

    Norma joined Chehardy Sherman in May 2002.

    At some point she was also chief of parish courts (taking over from John Young when he got elected). But you know where she worked before then? Ansardi, Maxwell & Power. Ansardi, Maxwell was also acted as the Kenner city attorney.

    In 2006 she was on the committee that was amending Kenner’s charter. That committee was chaired by a lawyer from Broussard’s own firm, though that was not reported in the press. A judge (who? had ruled that because such a group was a “committee” and not a “commission” (nice, huh?) any recommendations would not have to be put on the ballot. Would love to know the name of that judge. 7/19/06, 7/26/06 TP.

    4/5/08 TP: Look who is monitoring the red light camera program: >While the cameras have been catching red-light runners for months, accused motorists are now getting their day in court. Officials at 2nd Parish Court had their first scheduled red-light camera citation hearings March 26. In 1st Parish Court, camera cases are just beginning to appear regularly on the traffic court dockets.

    There are usually 25 to 30 cases set for hearings, but actual trials like Winkler’s are rare, said Norma Broussard , director of the district attorney’s Parish Court Unit.

    “A lot of them end up pleading guilty once they see the video,” she said.<

  2. If you’re interested, here’s some more, amazing what’s out there:

    From the 7/26/09 TP, a story about upping the penalties on DWI’s: >The stiffer penalties will force tipsy motorists — without the immediate benefit of counsel — to make a roadside decision: Refuse the breath test and lose the license for one year, or risk blowing above the .08 blood-alcohol limit, in which case a 90-day suspension automatically kicks in. Metairie attorney Troy Broussard , who bills himself as “The DWI Doctor,” said the new law will probably scare more drivers into taking the test. “I wouldn’t mind taking the 90-day hit as opposed to the one-year hit for refusing,” he said. But Broussard said some might still opt out of the test: namely “buzzed” drivers — motorists who feel they’ve only had a few — and drivers who’ve been imbibing heavily. That’s because if they blow above a .20 BAC, they get an automatic two-year suspension. “If I’m facing two years of a driver’s license suspension, I’m not going to blow into that thing,” Broussard said.The Kenner Star, a monthly community news publication, sued the city Monday , saying it has not been paid $8,845 for publishing advertisements and other work, and that city officials have twice “intimated” that the marketing agreement will be canceled.

    Louis Congemi applauded the suit.
