New Time for New Orleans?

Not if the judges there can help it. The stuff that's going on down there is absolutely unbelievable. Judges, used to doling out attorney assignments as patronage are getting pissy with the public defenders who have gone down there to try to fix the atrocious system.

Take Steve Singer for example:


He was held in contempt for helping an indigent client get a lawyer. And though the judges order was reversed, the Singer story tells you almost everything you need to know about a profoundly bankrupt system and the lengths it'll go to protect "the way they do things down there."
