I’m getting word the gang spent 90 minutes or so behind closed-doors discussing the Vandenweghe v Parish of Jefferson. For those of you catching up Anne Marie Vandenweghe was harassed and ultimately fired from her job in the Parish Attorney’s office because she was seen as cooperating too vigorously with federal prosecutors investigating Broussard era corruption.
To the extent Parish Prez John Young is due before the cameras next week for his video deposition I am seeing hints on the PACER docket that, just like the post Katrina insurance litigation, Phelps Dunbar is incapable of trying a case without resorting to cheating and trickery as they have evidently been sandbagging emails in discovery. Thank goodness I posted a few specimen emails discussing AMV in late July as it is my understanding Phelps Dunbar initially said none existed.
Worth noting is that one of Mary Landrieu favorites for US Attorney, Kim Boyles, was an early participant in both TheRiot’s ill-advised lawsuit against the blogosphere and in the continued retaliation against Vandenweghe. Can you imagine what a disaster this cesspool lovin’ miscreant would make as Jim Letten’s replacement! Speaking of that I wonder if Mike Magner will be testifying in the upcoming trial? 😉
