Trout Point Lodge, Cerro Coyote, Aaron Broussard and others named as co-conspirators/defendants in federal racketeering suit.

For true folks they are so named as the Concrete Busters lawsuit has been removed from the Orleans Parish CDC to the US District Court in New Orleans.  My perusal of the docket indicates this case is filed under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act as it looks to me like certain Goatherders are in BIG trouble. :-) Slabbed’s previous coverage of this aspect of the larger corruption scandal in Jefferson Parish can be found by clicking here.

The 54 page amended state court petition attached to the federal suit can be found here.

And there is more coming.

  1. I am sure soon to be followed by Waist Management’s filing . My oh my how is Heebe and Ward to keep up with their testimony with so many different witnesses pleading guilty and chirping in so many different cases ? I would think it to be not a good thing to impeach yourself in a civil RICO case and lord knows financialy what will happen if they cop a plea deal with the DOJ now , eh?

  2. Good Read question now is are you and AMV gonna jump in ?

    Pattern of racketeering activity requires at least two acts of racketeering activity, one of which occurred after the effective date of this chapter and the last of which occurred within ten years (excluding any period of imprisonment) after the commission of a prior act of racketeering activity. The U.S. Supreme Court has instructed federal courts to follow the continuity-plus-relationship test in order to determine whether the facts of a specific case give rise to an established pattern. Predicate acts are related if they “have the same or similar purposes, results, participants, victims, or methods of commission, or otherwise are interrelated by distinguishing characteristics and are not isolated events
    Although some of the RICO predicate acts are extortion and blackmail, one of the most successful applications of the RICO laws has been the ability to indict or sanction individuals for their behavior and actions committed against witnesses and victims in alleged retaliation or retribution for cooperating with federal law enforcement or intelligence agencies.

    Violations of the RICO laws can be alleged in civil lawsuit cases or for criminal charges. In these instances charges can be brought against individuals or corporations in retaliation for said individuals or corporations working with law enforcement. Further, charges can also be brought against individuals or corporations who have sued or filed criminal charges against a defendant.

    Anti-SLAPP (strategic lawsuit against public participation) laws can be applied in an attempt to curb alleged abuses of the legal system by individuals or corporations who utilize the courts as a weapon to retaliate against whistle blowers, victims, or to silence another’s speech. RICO could be alleged if it can be shown that lawyers and/or their clients conspired and collaborated to concoct fictitious legal complaints solely in retribution and retaliation for themselves having been brought before the courts.

    Although the RICO laws may cover drug trafficking crimes in addition to other more traditional RICO predicate acts such as extortion, blackmail, and racketeering, large-scale and organized drug networks are now commonly prosecuted under the Continuing Criminal Enterprise Statute, also known as the “Kingpin Statute”. The CCE laws target only traffickers who are responsible for long-term and elaborate conspiracies; whereas the RICO law can be charged for a variety of organized criminal behavior.[6]

    1. Good question Tom. I received another communication today that I view as attempted extortion in a scheme to deprive me of my civil rights.

      I am keeping all my options open.

      1. Personally, I think it is high time that all interested parties on the anti-Heebe side, Commenters on various blogs, AMV, Waste Management, Concrete Busters et al have a pow-wow …

  3. LITIGIOUS AMERICAN EX-PATS is how Frank Magazine coined Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret in their publication.

    Is that defamatory? Is it an invasion of privacy how Frank reported the pair ‘has applied for landed immigrant status’ and ‘pay to advertise in the Conde Naste Johnases guide’?

    What about running a headline called “Cyber Libel” written by the funny Sue Ingem that pisses all over Leary and Perret for ‘crying foul over anonymous comments left in the’ Times Picayunes’s website?

    This article is posted online courtesy of “Steve” and it is a very unflattering and critical review of how libel actions are used to chill and intimidate the press. The opening paragraph addresses ‘..editor of The Coast should thank his lucky stars he’s not yet landed in the same legal pickle as the Times Picayune.’

    Were the Canadian media alert to the libel threat Leary and Perret posed? Without a doubt.

  4. Mr. Chairman, in the event that readers wish to become commenters can you please clarify your existing linguistics policy that requires all typists convey the tone and style of Anne Vandenweghe.
    Merci

  5. Dear Mr. Smith,

    There are variant nuances of this criminal conspiracy entered into by Heebe, Ward, Broussard, Wilkinson, Whitmer, et al to award River Birch an illegal landfill monopoly in Jefferson Parish … and I have this on first hand information …

    It was Mr. Broussard who directed Whitmer to call for the RFP on the woody waste issue … it was Whitmer who expanded this same RFP into the ‘infamous’ fishing trip that tipped Heebe that all was now honkey-dorey for River Birch to go forward with the set up for their bid being chosen … and it was Wilkinson, by way of Broussard and the JP Council, who chose to hire Phelps, Dunbar to collaborate with Wilkinson in filing not only a pre-mature breach of contract lawsuit against Waste Management, but one that was both specious and unlawful. Phelps, Dunbar was paid $130,000 during this time period in 2009 to act as counsel to Wilkinson. A lawsuit that the Parish has since acquiesced with a settlement in favor of Waste Management !

    And as you are well aware by now, Wilkinson was the soldier told to carry out this illegal action by putting together his hacks, Foss and Gandolfi, on that ‘select’ corrupted committee …

    If you have any questions relative to my understanding of this criminal conspiracy, please feel free to contact Sop who can then relay your message to me…

      1. Doug … this is without a doubt THE BOMB that should be responsible for Broussard’s sweetheart Letten plea being set aside by Judge Head and have him order a trial date in Corpus Christi …

        I have to assume Dutchie Connick is on both Concrete Busters’ and Waste Management’s witness list to be deposed !!!

      1. Just a question among friends, has anyone here ever been shaken down? I know, I know, PARISH the thought, but I’m wondering….

        You know, by someone so smooth, we thought he was a peeled onion…So smooth, he was like a greased doorknob, couldn’t quite get your hand on him….

      2. And of course, the other guy, Mr. Da Breeze?

        You hear him, you feel the wind blow, the tree bends, the leaves move and some fall to the ground, something shakes and Mr. Da Breeze is gone….

        1. It’s not that he is (or they’re) gone; it’s that he (they) run for cover … and now that “big Jim”/”big Him”/”big Dim” Letten is gone, I believe Mr. Da Breeze is fucked … unless of course, you can enlighten us with some facts otherwise !!!

      3. onasneed has got the drift, I think … instead of some nebulous pondering by yourself and Nola born, give us facts… facts about anything, but particularly pertaining to the corrupton in Jefferson Parish !
