If the name appears on Slabbed a bunch……

The demonstrated track record is there for all to see. Last Friday was “bad news Friday” for several very prominent members of the Louisiana bar:

Vital background on Mann can be found here

Those weren’t the only two lawyers in dutch with the LA ODC as a lawyer whose name has shown up on Slabbed multiple times was also in that number: Continue reading “If the name appears on Slabbed a bunch……”

Louisiana legal four pack: It is good to feel loved

Let’s start next door in St Slammany Parish:

Former St. Tammany DA Walter Reed indicted on multiple counts of wire, mail fraud, money laundering, filing false statements to IRS ~ Sara Pagones

Considering Reed’s history as ST Slammany DA the following is rich!

Steven Reed’s lawyer: Feds abusing discretion by including son in indictment of former DA ~ Gordon Russell

Slabbed has done nothing on the above except highlight the show. Gordon Russell and Lee Zurik get the props for bring the story home. Next up for Reed and his son is the hangin’.

In other news it appears the FBI has looked at the cell phone video of JPSO Detective Nicholas Breaux stomping a defenseless teenager at Mardi Gras. It also appears they must not agree with Sheriff’s police report which contends the teenager was choking Breaux, who moonlights as a mixed martial arts fighter when he is not stomping defenseless teenagers for Sheriff Newell Normand.

FBI confirms formal investigation into case of Jefferson Parish deputy repeatedly punching high school student in face ~ Jim Mustian

I think most everyone understands that sometimes people in law enforcement have a bad day on occasion and that some folks simply do not have a temperament for the trade. The problem lies in the attempted coverup.

Something tells me we have not heard the last of these cases.
