Highway Robbery at the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office

Gusman agrees to pay lawyers who sued him $900,000 ~ Claire Galofaro

The $900,000 is not the highway robbery part. This is:

Gusman pays his own lawyers, the firm of Usry, Weeks and Matthews, a flat rate of $68,000 every two weeks. If that arrangement continues, in the five years it will take him to pay the Southern Poverty Law Center its $900,000, he will have paid his own lawyers about $8.8 million.

File this one under nice to be a good ol’ boy.
