    Friday Nov 28 | via The Advocate 

    The recent murder-for-hire trial of Monique O. Kitts, the woman found guilty on Nov. 20 of hiring Karl Michael Howard to fatally shoot her husband four years ago, had all the sex, scandal and twists that make entertaining episodes of "Law & Order" watercooler moments at work the next day. And at the center of the trial were the antics of Assistant District Attorney Tony Clayton and defense lawyer Allen Myles, who transformed the courtroom into a theater of sorts as they argued their sides of the case with periodic busts of name-calling and finger pointing.

my husband was hit by a drunk driver (who was arrested and charged). we turned in our health insurance info when we took him to the hospital and he was fine. he had some soreness and a small cut on his arm for the glass. before the health insurance company paid the bill was $24,000 and some change. after they paid the hospital wants a $9,000 and some change. what kind of settlement should we expect? my husband was in a company truck and they have already settled up. we had to wait for all the bills to come.

Long story short, my brother in law ( who is 20) got drunk and got into a fight at a bar and got thrown out. He was arrested and spent 3 days in jail before being bailed out ( not by me because I have more sense than that.) They are charging him with. Public intoxication, Resisting an officer, Re-entering a premises after it was forbidden, disturbing the peace, and public intimidation. He came by today and said he is suing the parish because he was never given a sobriety test or a breathalyzer ( although he does admit to drinking, and he is underage) I laughed. But still wonder if he can be charged with the public intoxication etc?
He's suing the parish? Yeah right. Talk is cheap. No attorney would touch that lawsuit since it has no merit. Have...
