SECOND TRIAL CONCLUDES AFTER FOUR DAYS
Oct. 19, 2018
Evidence and testimony concluded yesterday before Judge Nakisha Ervin-Knott as 10 homeowners presented their claims for damages after a four day trial. The judge listened intently to homeowners as they testified to the substantial damage to their homes and disruption to their lives as a result of the years of industrial construction that has taken place so close to their homes because of the drainage project. And still, the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board refuses to settle or mediate these claims, instead opting to pay million of dollars in attorneys fees to try each of these 300 cases in Civil District Court.
The court ordered NOSWB to pay over a half million dollars after the first trial of 5 claims in April, 2018.
