Let’s deconstruct part of the case: Slabbed takes another look back at USA v Sibley as we make a correction

In reference to this post dated November 13, 2012 which re-examined the federal prosecution of Hugh Sibley for money laundering, I wrote “multiple sources tell Slabbed that Desai is being represented in the matter by Greensburg area attorney David Opperman”.

Mr Opperman has informed Slabbed that he does not represent Nipun Desai in his criminal case. He confirmed he is Mr Desai’s civil attorney and that he occasionally teamed up with the Legal Department there at the Super 8 Motel representing Desai’s legal interests. He also indicated he considers Mr Desai to be one of his closest friends and understood the confusion regarding his representation of Mr Desai’s business interests in civil cases and his criminal case in the 24th JDC.

Additionally I inspected certain official paperwork on Mr Desai’s cocaine distribution case, which is currently before Judge Glenn Ansardi there in the 24th JDC. Mr. Desai’s arrest on cocaine distribution charges back in 2008 occured in the same general time period as the indictment of Hugh Sibley but the police report does not indicate a linkage between the two cases, though possession of 80 grams of cocaine in the managers suite of the hotel is certainly serious enough.

The goal of Slabbed New Media in the proverbial search for the truth is get the story right. I thank Mr Opperman speaking candidly with me about this matter and I hope this clears up any confusion.

Update:  Here is a copy of the police report on the Desai arrest for those so interested.

Continued bad times at the Legal Department at the Super 8 Motel Part 2. Quitclaim Magee sues Danny Abel for defamation

As soon as I get the docs I’ll be posting them folks because the jackassery associated with the Goatherder Nation is seemingly endless. Background information on Quitclaim Magee can be found in part 1 of this series.


See what happens when a reporter sells out?

First the journalist sells out, essentially becoming a mouthpiece of the person that buys ’em.  Then said journalist gets accused of all manner of transgressions by the paranoid meglomaniac that owns ’em and are routinely threatened with the loss of their media credentials.

Gregg Williams may have been texting Saints draft picks to someone but it wasn’t me ~ Jeff Duncan

It would be one thing if any of these recent draft picks had actually done anything for the Saints besides warm the bench so I’m not certain what Sean Payton’s beef is with Duncan. I mean hell he already owns him lock, stock and barrel. That’s OK because Payton owns ’em all which is why I read Moosedenied.

Now folks, if you really want to see something fun, let Mini-me call Slabbed into the council chambers under the investigative powers clause of the Parish Charter, wanting to know who leaked me information about his 5am potty training sessions. The fur would fly people, that I promise.

Oh yeah coach, win 12 next year so no one will give a shit what you do to your harem of local sports reporters.

Some folks that know the guy well tell Slabbed he’ll do himself in before he spends a day in jail…..

Aaron Broussard must forfeit $231,369 for political corruption, government says ~ Drew Broach

I personally think Mr. BrousStar is more resilient than that. Time will talk.

Dear Joe, ab$olutely love the banking indu$try. Love, Aaron

it was the opportunity to get to know and love both of you in a way that would have never been possible outside of the intimacy of banking activities.

Who knew banking was intimate? I guess it would have to be for a self admitted corrupt politician but whatever floats your boat there Aaron. Let’s pull an oldie outta the cyber jukebox and ponder the possibilities.

Yes Virginia, these new age Coastie politicians are rotten to the core.

Gulf Live file photo of politician Michael Janus

If memory serves Michael Janus and our fluffer Congressman are lifelong associates:

Michael Janus, a man who Congressman Steven Palazzo described as a “close friend of my family for years” was formally named Palazzo’s chief of staff on Thursday.

The families that politic together thieve together as well:

‘Oversights’ disclosed in $3M BP grant ~ Mary Perez

“The six council members knew nothing of the agreement until after the grant was received,” said city attorney W. Fred Hornsby III. The council could have chosen not to pay Maxwell-Walker, he said, but agreed to give the firm the standard 6 percent finder’s fee of $180,000 for the grant.

The payment to Maxwell-Walker was not discussed in an open council meeting, only in executive session, Janus said.

Rather than putting a resolution for payment on the budget, it was added to the Dec. 20, 2011, docket of claims with the city’s other bills.

And then there are the obvious conflicts of interest. D’Iberville Mayor Quave works at DMR and is paying his former boss’ son. Janus, the City Manager is in business with Scott Walker via JaWa Investments LLC, a name I thought funny considering the jabberwalk BS involved in terming all this a mere “oversight”.

Well Lee, you weren’t the only guy who couldn’t get ol’ Harry on the line…..

Feds investigate former St. Charles DA ~ Lee Zurik, January 24, 2013

The FBI has requested records from the Clerk of Court’s office, and our sources say the probe involves DWI’s and alleged sexual favors.

If I was a newspaper reporter I’d ask Jim Letten why St Charles Parish DA Harry Morel Jr decided to call it quits ~ Doug Handshoe, September 9, 2011

Gee Lee, what source would that be?

Trading leniency for sexual favors perhaps? Maybe instead of being allowed to resign the man should be prosecuted. JMHO

I’d like to remind our local media friends of the creative commons license Slabbed displays on the right side bar.  I’m not asking for money, nor am I looking for a share of a Peabody award.  Attribution is all I require.

Is this a sign the Virginian is undoing some of the more curious Team Letten decisions, as previously documented on these pages?  An apology to AROD would be certainly be in order IMHO.
