Who Is Looking Out For You, Baby?

While there seems to be a great amount of disdain for Larry English and his filing of a class action suit against the City of Alexandria, one must observe that the ongoing action between CLECO and COA involves those entities and not necessarily the express interests of the citizens of Alexandria vis-a-vis possible past utility overcharges or refunds to the citizens. Is it possible that the class suit will get answers that have to date not been forthcoming or will it further cloud the issue and allow "attorney gold mining"?

attorney gold mining is a great way to put it. here you have a woman who first represented ems and then switched teams and began representing the city probably because she thought she would get more money... 10% of the entire settlement to one woman. when she was taken off the case by roy, she hired this english guy from shreveport... an outsider who barked and bitched about the fifth amendment when he was really talking about the first amendment. next thing you know he's filing an independent class action suit against the city and we're supposed to believe this has nothing to do with bridgett brown. give me a break. these attorneys smell money and they're willing to do whatever they have to do to get their hands on it. english doesn't care about the citizens of alexandria. he's not even from here and he only knows about the whole thing because of bridgett brown. the disdain for him is understandable. he thinks he is a lot smarter than he really is. he thinks he's got a lot of people fooled.

If there is a valid issue there and the COA did some things improperly or incorrectly regarding the utility rates, I would rather have a competent attorney involved with a grasp on the important things, like the difference in his Constitutional rights and the ability to use the English language.
