Taryn Blume Developments

Curious Case Pits Cannizzaro & Star Prosecutor Against Investigator for Public Defender



Taryn Blume is having her trial delayed until August 15th with several key rulings expected before that date. Blume is a staff investigator for the Orleans Public Defender accused of impersonating an employee of the District Attorney’s Office while working on the defense of Curtis Hawthorne in 2014. She could face two years in prison if convicted.


Monumental Hearing

Recap & Analysis from the Monument Removal Suit



The long running debate about the fate of four Confederate monuments entered an endgame on Thursday (1.14) morning. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier (of Deepwater Horizon fame) heard arguments in a case challenging the Council’s 6-1 vote to declare New Orleans’ monuments to Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, P.T. Beauregard, and the Crescent City White Leage a nuisance meriting removal.


Monument Men


A volunteer group tasked with maintaining the City’s monuments held an afternoon presser on Tuesday (12.08), but the organizations points may be moot. After announcing the collection of 30,000 plus signatures in favor of keeping four controversial monuments, the Monumental Task Committee (MTC) demanded another opportunity for public comment. However, the City Council already released a revised itinerary to allow for additional public comment earlier in the day.
