IT IS ORDERED that the Motion to Intervene (Rec. Doc. No. 320) is DENIED as baseless and frivolous. Release of the records at issue to Defendants in the above-captioned matter has already been authorized (see Rec. Doc. No. 217, pg. 3 of 14). Moreover, Record Documents 200, 209, 217, 221, 240, and 243 were released publicly by the Court’s unsealing order issued in January 2003 (see Rec. Doc. 264).
It is beginning to appear that the only thing baseless and frivolous about this is Judge Lemelle’s order, which neither addressed the motion at hand and is misleading in its text.
Sources with knowledge of the contents of the black book tell us that Vitter was a customer before Ms. Maier began taking names. But lordie lordie the names in the book I did hear!
A collective sigh of relief nows comes from the Ms. Maier’s rich, powerful and famous former johns.
Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me.
While the old children’s saying is not completely true, it takes a wise person to understand why people lash out, especially in circumstances such as those in the case of our own Ashton O’Dwyer, whom I finally had the pleasure of meeting in person last week.
Ashton, in many so ways, is a tragic figure woven into the fabric of our post Katrina world. Like Robert Davis, Ashton will probably never see justice done in his post Katrina abduction at the hands of the NOPD where he was incarcerated and repeatedly shot point-blank with beanbag rounds from a 12 gauge shotgun.
As we look to fiscal/school year 2010-2011: enrollment is still down 699 students from pre-Katrina enrollment. A loss of $1, 894, 193.00 is equal to the 669 students we are still down in enrollment.
However, the reduced enrollment is not just reflected in the associated reduction in State funding. The 699 fewer students also reflect the number of families who no longer own homes in the district and an associated reduction in the property tax revenue that provides the base funding for public education.
