In this episode of Magnum J.D.: Continental Casualty Company calls Bull (Durham) on Magnum and his firm, files suit.

Continental Casualty Co. filed suit in Louisiana federal court Friday alleging it should not have to pay to defend Gauthier Houghtaling & Williams LLP in actor Stephen Baldwin’s lawsuit over a $52 million joint venture deal with one of the firm’s partners.

I’ll see if I can update this post with case docs after I’ve had a chance to hit PACER.


Local Weiner on display: Kenner City Councilman Joe Stagni impersonates Anthony Weiner. But do we have a Cockshot?

Kenner City Councilman Joe Stagni (H/T WDSU)

Channel 6 broke the story of Joe Stagni who evidently has a proclivity for doing the self-portrait thing a la Anthony Weiner. Now folks, if history is any guide there is likely a photo hanging about someplace in cyberspace of Mr Stagni freeing his willie.

This budding scandal has evidently attracted the local authorities who have launched a probe into Stagni, his picture and mistress. Stay tuned.


It doesn't mean a thing if you ain't got that bling doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah………

NOPD composite sketch. (H/T The Times Picayune)

From the stupid burglar files someone (composite sketch on left) robbed Judge Vance’s place uptown last week stealing $100K worth of bling. It is rumored that stealing from a federal judge brings 10 years bad luck.

We have lots of uptowners in the Slabbed Nation. You folks be careful out there.
