Laid-Off Times-Picayune Employees Sue Newspaper, Parent Company Over Now-Defunct Job Security Pledge


Seven former longtime employees of The Times-Picayune in New Orleans who were laid off from their jobs in the fall of 2012 during corporate owner Advance Publications’ radical restructuring of the newspaper and more than a dozen others it owns around the country have filed suit against the newspaper and Advance, alleging “unlawful employment practices.”


Today in New Orleans 10.17.13


Tonight, Times-Picayune book author Rebecca Theim is coming to Octavia Books to discuss Hell and High Water, and the Ogden is opening its doors after hours for Alexis and the Samurai. On this day in 1861, General Mansfield Lovell arrived in New Orleans. Tonight, more guests in town from the New Orleans Film Festival and the Hand in Gloves conference. 


Tonight: Bar Crawl to Help Laid-Off Times-Picayune Employees


by Mary-Devon Dupuy

Loyal fans of Da Paper and its doomed seven-days-a-week print schedule: if anyone is looking for a good place to spend a thirsty Thursday, check out the Lower Garden District tonight. Bars in the area will donate a portion of their proceeds to dashTHIRTYdash, a fund set up to benefit those New Orleanians that are losing their jobs along with a daily print newspaper.
