It means that even tho we are supposed to get the full judgment of money owed, Including interest, we are only getting what we would have gotten in 1984 and no interest, on top of that the lawyers still have to take out there fees for almost 30 years. So technically, that means we are getting a window to pee out of and no house or pot to go with it.

I, personally, think that all the ones we think are for us , are actually against us. The meetings we use to goto are actually crowd control measures to keep the heat off of there backs while they work along side the state to screw us all. I also believe the reason why we havent had any more updates here or any more meetings is because there is no angry crowd to control anymore and or they have given into a crappy settlement agreement and they dont want us to know until the last moment when they hit us with the big bomb at the end so they can run fast and hide. They brain washed us with reverse psychology keeping HOPE alive in this lawsuit so when stuff gets leaked out into the public, like they did in those links i posted, we will see the words that they use like " ..hopes the final settlement will be in excess of the $93 million.. " and that we will believe we are getting the full judgment with interest like the supreme court ruled in our favor. When all in all ,they have taken advantage of our good southern kindness and trust and are working with the state, beings it is in the time of supposed turmoil it is in now, to go against what the supreme court has ruled and are getting a comfortable figure for the state to pay without putting the state and all of its officials including our lawyers into the streets because they will all go bankrupt. It is a shame how they have transformed, WE the PEOPLE, into , WE the GOVERNMENT!! Another method of rev. psychology i think they used, is telling us , to "lay low" " When the time is right we will protest, but not now" when the actual truth is, we should have not been laying low and protesting the whole time!!! They are representing us, so when they make a decision, that is a decision we,the members of this class action lawsuit, already agreed to. You know, they speak for us as one voice and they are not speaking well on our behalf but for the wellness of the states behalf and themselves. Regardless of what we get, the lawyers are going to get there cut! Heaven forbid if they get screwed over the time they put into this suit!!

If i am wrong, i apologize, But the way things are shown to me and the way things are NOT shown to me, this is what i truly believe!

PROTE, I wish I could say you're wrong but I can't. I can tell you this though, I did not spend a couple thousand dollars, out of my own pocket, and a couple of thousand hours creating and maintaining i12exit47.com in an effort to mislead. It was the opinion of the elected Boudreaux Council that our biggest problem was the apparent rift between competing counsel.
-
Our efforts have led to the election, as council president, of a flood survivor who was actually in the flood, has been active in this fight from day one and who, like the rest of us, doesn't care which lawyer or judge or legislator or Governor or the man on the moon gets credit for effecting justice in this tragic saga... just as long as it gets done. I firmly believe Mr Joe Perrin is the right man to represent and protect the best interest of the class. But we've got to remember folks... our elected officials do not hold the state to the same moral standard that the State holds "we the people." If our legislators don't want to pay, we can't start confiscating State property in the same way they would penalize us.
-
I don't speak for the Boudreaux Council, only Mr Perrin can do that, but personally I agree a plan for civil protest as the coming legislative session nears, might be effective. Filing a SYMBOLIC lien on the Governors mansion. A sign in every legislators yard (or a reason why they don't want it there) and a visible presence of protesters when they begin meeting this spring would be in order.
-
I have a good email addresses for over 700 class members and will use them to distribute any information or news that results from a "protest organizing committee." While I know none of this will make anyone feel better, I honestly believe that we're not "dead in the water" and there is still hope.
-
God's blessings and a Merry Christmas to all.

Nope all the money goes to the poor victims of New Orleans, the Fricking Saints, and surrounding ereas to all the idiots that love a city that is below see level. May as well give it up. Nobody gives a chit about anybody that doesn't live South of the lake. Fed up with this state!! Ray Nagin prolly got our money!!! Crooks every last one of them!!!

I gave up, we cant fight the system. IF we do get money were not gonna get anything worth anything. I also believe we have been lied to and used by everyone fighting this lawsuit. We should have seen this coming a mile away on how our government is.
