It fell to Assistant Parish Attorney Ken Krobert to represent the Parish’s Code Department in the Parish’s fight with the parents of a child with muscular dystrophy and their specialized RV that is tricked out to meet the child’s special needs.
There are some important takeaways from Paul’s article but then again Slabbed’s covered Jefferson Parish long enough to understand not that long ago the case would have been given out to a private law firm that no doubt previously would have contributed heavily to the Parish Council members various campaign funds. There is an undeniable irony in who the Cronley’s used for their lawyer in this fight against the Parish when you look at it from that perspective. Today, these cases are handled in house for the Parish by professionals like Ken and the taxpayers get a bang for their buck in the process.
Congratulations to the Cronley’s for fighting and winning the good fight with City Hall.
