  • Larry Centola III, of Martzell & Bickford Law Firm, Appointed to Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee Handling the Bayou Corne Sinkhole LawsuitsNEW ORLEANS, LA, – On December 5, 2012, a federal judge in New Orleans appointed the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (“PSC”) in the Bayou Corne Sinkhole lawsuit. The Court ordered that all plaintiffs are directed to act through the PSC for all issues requiring the Court’s attention. Members of the PSC have been at the forefront of this litigation since the first filings. Larry Centola III, Esq., of Martzell & Bickford has been appointed to the PSC. Mr. Centola has substantial experience and much success in representing the interests of Plaintiffs in other similar, complex litigations. The Bayou Corne Sinkhole lawsuit involves potentially hundreds, if not thousands, of victims. Texas Brine LLC is involved in the Bayou Corne sinkhole incident and was recently fined $100,000 by the Department of Natural Resources for failing to obey several safety directives the state issued Nov. 12 regarding the sinkhole in Assumption Parish. For more information about the current settlement or about the Bayou Corne Sinkhole litigation, contact one of our attorneys at the Law Office of Martzell and Bickford: (504) 581-9065.

WRKF radio show , The Jim Engster Show, has interview with Lt. General Russel Honore. (podcast)

“Jim chats with Lt. General Russel Honore (U.S. Army ret.), about the 8th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina later this week. The General was placed in charge of the response to the storm and the flood disaster in New Orleans that followed. He also talks about the 50th anniversary of the civil rights March on Washington.”   He said he planned a big media event after his tour of Bayou Corne. So there must’ve been some kind of press conference. Some news should appear soon.

He will speak at Methodist University on Sept. 6th. Open to the public.
