Katrina plaintiffs win a big one!

Anita Lee reported the victory – Pass condo owners prevail in Katrina lawsuit against insurer

The owners of condominium units in Pass Christian felt relieved and vindicated Friday by a jury’s decision to award them $1.8 million from insurer Lloyd’s of London to cover Katrina’s wind damage.

Lloyd’s waited almost a year after the storm to deny the claim, forcing the Penthouse Owners Association to sue in January 2007.

U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden found “no arguable basis” for Lloyd’s decision, ordering the insurer to also cover the association’s legal fees, pre-judgment interest on the amount owed for losses and other fees. The association’s lead attorney, Don Barrett of Lexington, expects the total award to be around $4 million.

Make no mistake folks, this scandal will end up leading not only to John Alario but also to Former Gov Mike Foster, Billy Tauzin, David Vitter and likely Team Landrieu.   Steve Theriot and daughter Wanda were last seen with doughnut glaze on their chins.

Let’s kick off the coverage with Rich Rainey at the Times Picayune who did a great job connecting Mouton to Fred Heebe. It is an open secret that former Gov Mike Foster’s administration was openly for sale so this little gem from Murphy himself at the end of Rainey’s piece was priceless: Continue reading “The Mouton Indictment ripples across the media.
