Another Trout Point deed from Nova Scotia Canada, done dirt cheap as Calhoun buys in too

Makes sense that one of Danny Abel’s old class action legal associates from the tobacco days would show up with a deed. Notice the absence of the legalese “and other good and valuable consideration”.

It is the summer solstice so Slabbed is gettin’ “hot and bothered” with Calhoun and Mrs Fayard!

Oh Nell, if I may be so bold as to suggest you direct a portion of your freelance to Ben. Ben, I’ll add a nice photo gallery is always a big hit with the Slabbed Nation. And of course I mention all this because the Fayards are opening up their mansion on St Chas aka … Continue reading “It is the summer solstice so Slabbed is gettin’ “hot and bothered” with Calhoun and Mrs Fayard!”

Fazzio seeks a stay in his straw man campaign cash case. Takes a page out of the Calhoun playbook.

The Slabbed community has been all over Team River Birch’s use of straw man political campaign contributions to exceed the statutory limits since literally since day 1 when we broke it.  Yesterday evening, Paul Rioux filed a story for the T-P updating this portion of the sprawling political corruption saga as Big D wants a … Continue reading “Fazzio seeks a stay in his straw man campaign cash case.

Calhoun strikes out: Louisiana Supreme Court denies writs to quash Ethics Board subpoenas involving the Caroline Fayard campaign.

Sources familiar with the DEMOPAC Ethics Board investigation indicate to Slabbed the decision came down late last week under seal and today it appears on the internet as the Louisiana Ethics Board investigation into strawman political contributions involving the failed Lite Gov campaign of Caroline Fayard will move forward including an examination of DEMOPAC’s banking records (among many others) … Continue reading “Calhoun strikes out: Louisiana Supreme Court denies writs to quash Ethics Board subpoenas involving the Caroline Fayard campaign.”

Rut roh Calhoun! 1st Circuit Court of Appeals denies Calhoun’s writs. The Ethics Investigation into Calhoun’s alleged strawman political contributions is greenlit.

I’d say more folks but I’d be facing a fine of $2,000 and jail time so I’ll let the readers draw their own inferences there. My previous posts on this subject can be found here and here. ~ sop

To be filed on da Slabb: Calhoun and company file Slabbed at the 19th JDC seeking an expedited stay on the adminsitrative subpoenas

Question: Does Calhoun read Slabbed? Answer: What local lawyer doesn’t read Slabbed? Yesterday afternoon I received a bat signal from a reader that Team Calhoun filed new motions with the 19th JDC regarding the Ethics Administration investigation and, of course, Slabbed’s coverage was attached as an exhibit to one of the court filings. Slabbed lifers know this has happened on … Continue reading “To be filed on da Slabb: Calhoun and company file Slabbed at the 19th JDC seeking an expedited stay on the adminsitrative subpoenas”

The failed Caroline Fayard Lite Gov campaign could cost Calhoun greatly: A follow the campaign cash update

Folks, last year during the special election campaign for Louisiana Lite Gov, Scott McKay at the hard line GOP resource The Hayride did some great blogging on the money behind Caroline Fayard’s candidacy.  Ms Fayard is the daughter of Calvin “Calhoun” Fayard, a class action lawyer that was affiliated with the old Castano group of lawyers led by the late … Continue reading “The failed Caroline Fayard Lite Gov campaign could cost Calhoun greatly: A follow the campaign cash update”

There really is a method to the madness….

The method to the madness is called building a critter called institutional memory. It comes in handy on days like today.  Here are some salient links: A … Continue reading “There really is a method to the madness….”

Let’s start building the case: Allow me to reintroduce William “Hugh” Sibley to the Slabbed Nation

Sibley was a lawyer in the old Castano Group, the Louisiana based trial lawyer syndicate led by the late Wendell Gauthier that handled some of the tobacco litigation back in the 1990s. Besides Gauthier, Calvin “Calhoun” Fayard was involved as was Fayard’s political operative/lawyer associate Hugh Sibley. Trout Point Lodge owner Danny Abel was also … Continue reading “Let’s start building the case: Allow me to reintroduce William “Hugh” Sibley to the Slabbed Nation”
