Mixed verdict in Jefferson Parish's Katrina flood trial could lead to appeal

  // Sunday, 09 February 2014 20:46 //

On the surface, the jury that deliberated 7-1/2 hours before clearing Jefferson Parish government and former Parish President Aaron Broussard of liability for Hurricane Katrina flooding handed up a verdict fraught with inconsistency.

The jury concluded that the flooding wasn't an act of God, but it also found the parish's negligence didn't cause it.
