Kern Family Feud Erupts Again In New Orleans Court

It’s back to the Courts for the Kerns.

Not the court of Mardi Gras balls and revelry but that of civil or perhaps "uncivil court" where Barry Kern and his father, "Mr. Mardi Gras" Blain Kern are in somewhat of a family feud apparently fueled by alleged broken promises and further allegations of interference by the father's wife.

Here’s how the Times Picayune is putting the present day sad state of affairs for the family name synonymous with Fat Tuesday, itself:

The Times Picayune:  

The war between the Kerns returned to Civil District Court on Thursday, with Barry Kern seeking to wrest control of the float-making company that his father, Mardi Gras mogul Blaine Kern, founded 54 years ago.

Barry Kern filed suit again Thursday, saying his father failed to live up to his end of the agreement.

In the suit, Barry Kern contends that his father has not lived up to promises he made last October to settle a dispute that had threatened to scuttle such major parades as Rex, Bacchus, Muses, Orpheus and Endymion.

In that quarrel, Barry Kern said the company, under his father's leadership, was in fiscal disarray and on the verge of losing some of its most prestigious clients, largely because of the influence of Holly Brown Kern, the elder Kern's fourth wife. The younger Kern eventually filed suit.
