  1. sop, we were there this morning to observe the proceedings and to support Anne Marie.

    I’ll let others who were there who are legal versed give the highlites in greater detail.

    Anne Marie was meticulous, articulate, and well researched but GRETNA MENTALITY unfortunately prevailed.

    ANd as to previous posters to this blog who have posted earlier concerning their experience with this judge, yet another example of the failure of staffing of the 24th JDC.

  2. We’ll go clean up the “Gretna Mentality” toxic crap in 24th JDC but you Ann Marie Vandenweghe go forth and reverse that SOB and the Westbank powers that be and we’ll save the crap, allow it to brew a little while and then smear it back in their political corrupt faces. “Our business is political trash but its picking up”.

  3. gotta be something in the water – time for the Roto-Rooter of justice to clear the obstruction. Got your gloves at the office Mr. Letten or will the folks in DC have to send a crew down?

  4. jpcleanupcrew..one word of caution…wear your most toxic resistant clean up suits when entering the 24th JDC..the toxicity over there is deep & wide spread…however, once you have gathered the toxic contaminants you can unload them at River Birch landfill..just be sure and leave a small amount to be dumped in Heebe’s front yard down on St Charles Avenue..

  5. What the hell is going on at that Courthouse ?

    Did this Judge even go to law school? Oops I forgot he didn’t. Some kind of correspondance outfit I heard.

    How in the hell did this guy pass the bar ? Well I guess if his mentor Porteous could pass so could he.

    Frankly these people getting a license to practice law is further evidence of what a hell of a predicament we taxpayers are in.

    The fact that both of these reprobates became Judges in the 24th JDC tells the world what a HellHole JP is like what we heard and saw on national TV.

    Gretna Mentality=Fuck the law because my job is to fuck you because I cover up for my other politico thug cronies.

    Jefferson Parish is the HellHole of all HELLHOLES bar none ! (Pun intended)

  6. I was told a very long time ago that to kill a snake you must chop off its head. Anyone with airfare to Washington D.C.?

    From what I get from the Assistant Secretary of the Army [Civil Works] -{NOTHING BUT LESSON LEARNED} in charge of the COE they seem to be on the same team!!! A practicing Engineer should have all lessons learned in University, especially if REGISTERED.

    Oh! I forgot it is not required by the COE, they are above the law on that issue also!!
    it was not the levees STUPID it was the eroded banks of the canals that eroded into the required stability and the house of cards fell. No canal bank, no levee stability, no levee stability, no material to strengthen the steel pilings and away it goes.

    Best part folks they still do not monitor this required item of 33 CFR 208.10. I’m not owrried I live very near the Mississippi River on high ground at elevation +12. Approximately 90% of the city would be lost before water enters my yard!!!

    Keep you weapons handy and your powder dry!!! The ssnake is still in the grass no matter what they build!! They paint preaty pictures but the frame [base] is still rotten.

  7. O.K. this may not be an interlocutory judgment and it may not be designated as a final judgment. I have not read the record. Writ/devolutive appeal?? Certain Constitutional issues like LA Constitution Article XII, section 3 has been re written by the trial court. The burden falls to the Parish of Jefferson to show the information requested is protected by law. They did it wrong if the intent was to screw AMV!

  8. CONGRADULATIONS JUDGE ROSS LADART. Welcome to politicians paradise Ross Ladart. May your nose grow longer, your horns higher and your body bigger with every decision you render in total disregard of good government.You are in the perfect environmental conditions to grow well beyond your full potential in this paradise. Look at the robust size Porteous grew to.How about the big bod of Bodenheimer. The waters here are nurturing and full of green graft. Keep feeding everyday and all day from local cronies and don’t worry about your critics and their good governmental baited hooks . Just stay off the phones and only you can determine your future size and life expectancy.Bon appetit

  9. RE: Vandenweghe’s mandamus suit against Jefferson Parish to obtain public records.

    LaDart should be embarrassed for the Judgement he signed today; not to be, would be proof positive of his ignorance. He should be ashamed as a human being; not to be, beacons his abject amorality. But of course LaDart is immune from feeling any one of the emotions ascribed because he is tempered by “GretnaMentality”.

    And just what is GretnaMentality ? The phrase has been around for some time but gained national renown during the course of the Senate Committee’s Impeachment hearings of Porteous. The term is used in describing an array of immoral, unethical and/or illegal acts or conduct performed by Judges, Lawyers and Political Officials of Jefferson Parish. In essence, THE FIX IS IN !

    And if ever the fix was in, the conduct of LaDart during the hearing coaching the Defendant’s lawyers, and his subsequent vacuous judgment lacking any legal foundation is prima facia FIX.

    The Public Records Law of La, Titile 44 specifically states:

  10. I would just like to warn Honorable LaDart not to stand by his trash cans when our JP garbage trucks pass by because his @$$ will be picked up and deposited in the River Bitch Landfill, just as Bunhare has recommended.

  11. OOOOOOOOOOOOOwwwweeeeeeeee Sop, this has got to be a bad dream from eating too many nans’ and nuts late last night. And to think yesterday I quoted to the Honorable Judge Matt.5:14-15 about not letting the Light be put out. Lord forgive me if I threw your “pearls before swine” I was only trying to spread your Word for Righteousness sake. OOOOOOOOOOOwweeeeeeeeeeeee

  12. I, too, would welcome the opportunity to see the transcript of the proceedings in Open Court before LaDart. If I’m “hearing” things correctly, and reading between the lines correctly, LaDart had his mind made up before the case was called, and before AMV or “Aunt Jemima” ever opened their mouths. In a Comment to a prior Post earlier in the week, I said that LaDart was a “crooked as a snake SCUMBAG”, and I cited fellow Readers of SLABBED to the “Younce vs. Pacific Gulf Marine” and to other information available on the Internet about LaDart, wondering “out loud” why he had not been indicted, tried, convicted and incarcerated before ever being assigned to hear AMV’s case. Of course, the answer is “Mr. Show and Tell Himself”, Jim Letten. Ponder for a moment what the Readers of SLABBED are discussing: (1) A corrupt Judge; (2) Who allowed himself to be approached ex parte before argument today; (3) To be influenced to rule a certain way; and (4) Actually ruling the way those who contacted him wanted him to rule, and then signing a Judgment, today. Even if any one of these things were true, then we would be talking about a CORRUPT system of “Injustice”. How many are true “In the Matter of Ross LaDart”, and what will SLABBED and its Readers do about it? Ashton O’Dwyer.

    1. What you need to do is start learning the facts of the Younce versus Pacific Gulf Marine case… You were not sitting in that courtroom, for over two weeks, listening to the lies and deception of the defense counsel,,, and their Witnesses that is where the fix was in, Younce’s attorneys and judge the Ladart never made any deals, to have a favorable decision in the behalf of Harold Younce… It is Philip rapp, Pacific Gulf Marine, that tried to make a deal with judge Ladart… If you want to hear the complete and truthful story, from the beginning to the end, contact the one that all the evil and wicked was done to, me, Harold Younce,,, God knows the truth, I know the truth, and they know the truth, from the US attorney’s office Jim letten, Joe Allen Grant judge, Susan chehardy of the fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Louisiana Supreme Court, and the FBI and the US attorney’s office Jim letten… Todd Johnson and Philip rapp Pacific Gulf Marine, and they’re lying Witnesses… They will stand in judgement one day, very soon… God will get my revenge… They will have their part in hell… So if you want to know the truth from beginning middle and end, contact me, and stop saying there was wrong doing in my case…..

  13. Ladart went to Howard Law School? Why are rumors flying he never actually went there but did a correspondence course? Never heard of such a thing! Anyone?

  14. LaDart: This guy was a JP parish attorney for, what, like 15 years?

    And he owes his judgeship to Coulon & Wilkinson who gave his opponent a job so that he would be elected unopposed?

    No one should have EVER expected anything else.

    But I gottasay, this judgement is something else. Talk about jumping the shark, LaDart’s so stupid he does not know when to shut up when he’s ahead.

    YES, LET’S SEE THAT TRANSCRIPT!

    Kim Boyle is flippin’ counsel fo record???? The president of the bar association. Whoa, somebody’s worried.

    The exceptions of no right of action and no cause of action are the real tellers here; denied public records requests are definitely a proper cause of action and AMV definitely has as much right to bring it as anyone else.

    The Coulon/Broussard/Whitmer/Wilkinson krewe has quite a few friends on the 5th Circuit too, so don’t be holding no candles in the air just yet. The LA Supreme Court might be the sole refuge for AMV.

  15. Thank you telemachus for jogging my memory about the relationship between LaDart and that abomination, the disgraceful former Parish Attorney Wilkinson.

    I will now turn up the heat on future critiques of this mendacious and malleable lowbrow from Marrero, Ross LaDart.

    And it will get hotter, as I understand from viewfromhell knows of him from the past.

    Having just reviewed the leading authoritative cases on the remedy of a writ of mandamus to have public records produced in the event the custodian fails to do so, I am certain of this:

    1) whatever kind of law school LaDart managed to get a law degree, if in fact he did…DID NOT TEACH ANY COURSE THAT INCLUDED THE WRIT OF MANDAMUS !

    2) there could not have been any question posed on the bar exam that LaDart managed to pass that HAD ANY ISSUE DEALING WITH THE WRIT OF MANDAMUS !

    3) LaDart is now the #1 poster boy for “GretnaMentality” having conspired ‘to put the fix in’ with his JP politico thug buddies to further retaliate against AMV.

    Today’s injustice will prove to be a hollow victory indeed… tomorrow is another day

  16. I believe its a final judgment on its face and thus immediately appealable. Importantly, AMV should request Written Reasons as she is allowed to do under the La Code of Civil Procedure relative to final judgments. My thought has always been that when a judge like LaFart makes a legally unsustainable ruling then you must compel him or her to supprt it with written reasons. In the cases where I have done this, you can hold up the Written Reasons with the law and crystalize the incorrectness of the ruling(s).

  17. Blackmailed(can’t say it to loud as it could prompt deployment of another Washington, D.C.FBI crew) into rendering a one sided judgment with the speed of darkness.Da,like if you don’t do like da, we want you to do you may have like a challenger in your like next da, re-election. So make him puke out his written reasons in the next 10 days like Porteous, took 2 years to do in the Liljeburg hospital case, and see if there are ridiculous conclusions with no bases in law.We’ll clean up the toxic puke while you guys sort through the legal mess.”Our business is political trash and its picking up”

  18. Some follow-up notes:

    – I agree with the comment about requesting reasons. DO THAT NOW!

    – AMV needs to get the judgments in CDC and appellate on the rulings against Nagin on the very same issues.

    – A suggestion to AMV: even the very best attorney should not be handling his or her own case; please think about getting someone independent and dedicated to handle your arguments, briefs, motions, etc.

  19. From NOLA comments to “Porteous impeachment trial resumes with testimony from John Mamoulides”:

    Incognitorat September 21, 2010 at 9:47AM

    “In a handwritten note, District Judge Ross LaDart awards almost $1.7 million to Harold Younce, a seaman injured in 1995, in his suit against Pacific Gulf Marine Inc. Defendants will say LaDart should have recused himself because of his ties to Younce’s attorney. Later, both Bodenheimer and District Judge Alan Green rule there was no basis for recusal. ”

    “State Supreme Court nullifies Younce’s award from Pacific Gulf Marine and orders a new trial with a different judge, saying LaDart should have recused himself because of his ties to Younce’s attorney. ”

    This guy is still on the bench and is doing it again! Succession of Kenneth Eugene Carroll 24th Judicial Court Case No. 645-492 Division “O”

    Ross LaDart is hearing a case in which he states from the bench “I dont really know Civil Law, and usually when i get a case like this i hire the defense counsel to tell me what to do, but i cant do that now because he is counsel for the defense”

    The counsel for the defense has charged the estate over $200,000 dollars, WELL WELL WELL above the statutory 2.5%, and done nothing according to law. Even the accounting filed was proven false by the defendents own words. This whole case is nothing but the defense counsel keeping the dead mans money away from his family whom he left it to, and everything done has been contrary to law, LaDart even throws out the law when it suits his friend the defense counsel. LaDart actually calls this man his “guru” “mentor” and “go to guy.”

    WHEN WILL THESE PEOPLE BE ARRESTED? HELLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOO JIM LETTON! ANYONE? BUELLER? BUUUUUELLLLER???????????

    1. DONT WORRY , THEY WILL BE , IF NOT ALREADY , OR MY LORD WILL TAKE THEIR BREATH I ASURE YOU.HAROLD YOUNCE VS PACIFIC GULF MARINE / 24 JDC , 5TH CIRCUIT , SUPREME COURT OF LA. YOU ARE THE PROBLEM TO MAN / WOMAN / CHILD / AND MY LORD AND FATHER ALBA . TIME FOR THE BIG BOYS TO PLAY ……… SEE YOU / ALL PARTIES IN COURT / IF THATS OK WITH YOU ……..2282236083 ………TEXT ME ….

I MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU … IM IN PICAYUNE MS. 707 S HAUGH AVE .

  20. Interesting note about LaDart: He has NEVER reported a SINGLE campaign contribution.

    That is, according to him, he has never received one.

    This has been thes sole source of his funding:

    Ross P. Ladart SUP LOAN 08/24/2001 39000.00
    Ross P. LaDart 2516 Cypress Lawn Drive Marrero LA 70072

    Ross P. Ladart SUP LOAN 05/25/2001 25000.00
    Ross P. LaDart 2516 Cypress Lawn Drive Marrero LA 70072

    Ross P. Ladart SUP LOAN 09/07/2001 3300.00
    Ross P. LaDart 2516 Cypress Lawn Drive Marrero LA 70072

    Ross P. Ladart SUP OTHER 09/16/2009 100.00
    Campaign Finance 8401 United Plaza Blvd., Suite 200 Baton Rouge LA 70809

    —– Meanwhile, he has had expenditurs of a total of $1,375.00. All time. In all campaigns. That’s it. NONE OF THAT was spent in 2001.

    So: WHO is making those loans to LaDart? What’s curious is that the above – from the LA Dept. of Ethics (gottaluvthat for an oxymoron) – shows LaDart as the lender in all instances but in at least one instance the TP and other news sources reported the Beevers lawyers (Raylynn and Wiley) as being the lenders, something LaDart did not reveal when he got in trouble in that recusal case noted above. So if he did not report the lending parties there how about in the other instances?

    Has he paid the loans back? Ever? In entirety?

    How does this guy LaDart end up “lending” himself over $67,000 in 2001 for a campaign in which his only opponent drops out (only to be hired by his political allies and friends Coulon & Wilkinson & Broussard, whose mistakes and malfeasances are now before him for adjudication) and for which he ends up not spending or repaying a single dime???

  21. The case about the the dead guy mentioned above is ridiculous! He’s letting the attorneys bill the estate for legal issues created by the attorneys in the first place lol. And he hires the defense attorney when he doesnt know the law and needs help. And like another poster said, don’t count on the appeals to the 5th circuit. They denied a writt already in that case, had it sent back by the supreme court because the 2 out of the 3 judges who denied the writt had ruled the opposite of what they had ruled in an earlier case. Anyone ever hear of a judge saying the law is one thing one day and another thing the next? What happens to these people who get screwed?

  22. how old is Ladart, louisiana law forces him to retire at 70, finish your term if you turn 70 in the middle of it, otherwise, if he was reelected atfer age 70, every case he tried after that could be overturned

  23. This comment is for Harold. I’m doing you a favor and not clearing your comment from moderation. Please have your attorney contact me or you can email me. Thanks.
