Folks, rarely has a writer managed to weave so many angles of interest to the Slabbed Nation into one article as nicely as free-lance writer Jeremy Alford does for Gambit in his article Cash Cows. (H/T Editilla) There is only one place I know of that has woven players like Worley Catastrophe, Bermdoggle, Allan “Show me the Money” Kanner plus TheRiot and Magnum JD into a narrative and that of course is right here. Jeremy gets an A+.
Question: What does a NOLA based law firm that claims legendary trial lawyer/litigator Wendell Gauthier have in common with Boss Hogg’s law firm Brunini, Grantham, Grower & Hewes out of Jackson? Simple the color green as in cash, money, and greed as both firms have been caught with their hand in the conflict of interest cookie jar representing both sides in the current oil spill litigation. The disregard for basic legal ethics is stunning IMHO.
I only bring this up because a friend sent me this love letter from Magnum to Mark Holstein in BP’s legal department for the consideration of the Slabbed Nation.
I am writing in follow up to my previous correspondence. Our firm is eager to begin working on this matter on BP’s behalf. Please advise if we should contact anyone.
With kindest regards, I remain
I hate to share the vision of how I see the oil spill litigation unfolding but when the politicians, along with the local bar are too busy trying to cash in instead of representing the public’s or their client’s interest, “not much good” will be the end result except for those on the inside of the money grab.

Ladies and Gentlemen:
Judge Sarah Vance has busted Allen Kanner’s balls badly as Ex Rel Branch has been dismissed. Nowdy will have the particulars with respect to the insurers named, Allstate in particular. The Travelers and the insurance bastards at Liberty Mutual skate unscathed.
