Backroom cronyism is ALIVE AND WELL in New Orleans! Question that? See and hear lawyer RUSS HERMAN’S “birthday party” to smear Stuart “Neil” Fisher and the Two Canal Street Investors, Inc. (“TCSI”) lawsuit against the City of New Orleans and the New Orleans Building Corporation (“NOBC”)! THEY DO NOT WANT TO GO TO TRIAL! THEY WANT TO INFLUENCE THE COURT AND STATE’S LEADERS AND POLITICIANS! The World Trade Center 99-year lease deal the city signed with the Four Seasons group ROBBED THE CITY OF ,000,000 IN 2015!
Now MAYOR MITCH LANDRIEU and his cronies want to bury the truth. They want the case dismissed! They want the Louisiana Legislature to CHANGE STATE LAW TO PROTECT THEM! TO COVER UP FOR THE CITY, JONES LANG LASALLE (JLL) AND STONE PIGMAN LAW FIRM, ET AL. The lease with the Four Seasons group of Paul Flower/Woodward, Richard Friedman/Carpenter & Co., Alan Leventhal, Sherry Marcus Leventhal. et al. THIS IS HOW THESE PEOPLE WANT TO WIN LAWSUITS! They will stop at nothing.
This video clip of the Russ Herman et al. “secret society” St. Charles Avenue Uptown “party” to stop and silence important TCSI lawsuits filed against the City New Orleans (Four Seasons group lease) and the City’s Consultants JLL, Greg Hartmann, Judd Stensrud, Stone Pigman, Scott Whittaker and Angela Crowder speaks volumes.
Herman fails to mention the man he calls a “rascal and a scoundrel” (Fisher) paid him 0,000 for work on Market Street Properties (the old Entergy power plant project) and Plaza Tower (Crescent City Estates). Herman cashed checks for 7,229 and ,715 December 12, 2007.
Herman also fails to explain at his parties that the TCSI WTC RFP offer was ,000,000 higher for just one year…and billions long-term to the City…and that the LAWSUITS ARE ABOUT THE MANIPULATION OF AN RFP PUBLIC PROCUREMENT PROCESS — not Fisher!
Welcome to the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans — and the city’s hidden world of “secret societies” and power brokers.
The Mayor and the Four Seasons group want the Louisiana Legislature to pass Bill 447 (with retroactive measures!) — an unconstitutional attempt to circumvent the judiciary! It already passed the Senate and now goes to the House!
The pack of lawyers defending the Defendant City of New Orleans and also representing the Four Seasons group include Abigayle C. Farris, Gretchen Heldner, J. Dalton Courson, Nicholas J. Wehlen, Wayne J. Lee (STONE PIGMAN); Adam J. Swensek, Rebecca H. Dietz (CITY OF NEW ORLEANS); Dirk Wegmann, Michael Drew, Allison Kinsman, Graham Ryan, Steven Lane, Richard Tyler, Susan Tyler, Brett Venn (JONES WALKER); Russ Herman, Herbert Cade, Susan Valenti (HERMAN LAW FIRM) — and their law firms’ respective staffs.
